Re: Fair Winds
Thanks for the encouragement, everybody, but odds are I won't be around... at least until and unless we get another sailboat, which, realistically speaking, probably isn't very likely. Thing is: I tend to spend time in web forums for whatever special interest has my attention at the time. That's why I always tended to disappear in the fall, after haul-out, and re-appeared in spring, running up to splash.
While I liked sailing, what I truly enjoyed was working on our boat (yes, even down to scrubbing the decks) and racing our boat.
So, I think that, for now, I'm going to go on an indefinite hiatus from the sailing community. Without getting overly dramatic: Both The Admiral and I need to find something else to occupy or time and our minds. We're exceedingly unhappy, right now, and the whole thing feels a bit surreal.
Funny... we'd only had her for five years, but it felt like we'd known her a lifetime...
