Hi Melisa! Thanks for the welcome! I sail with some new found friends upon the Chesapeake. Of course, my passion and obsession can have me traveling anywhere along the east coast or the Caribbean! Lot's of FF miles and a really cool boss! Where in Fl are you?

Hi Mandy and welcome. This is my first year of sailing too. There's a lot to learn by reading here at Sailnet.

I'm in Tampa but we are going to SaraBay Sailing School in Sarasota- had the best price and were the most flexible.

The husband and I were just in your neck of the woods last week. We were visiting his parents in Jupiter and decided we didn't want to go home just yet so we decided to drive down the Keys! Very long drive but we had fun.

Started sailing the week I turned ten so just over ten years sailing experience now. Started out on optimists, laser picos, cap suds and mirrors. Still own my own little mirror and sail it from time to time when I want to get away from travellers, fair leads, back stays, sail drops and changes and just do some nice simple sailing! Progressed a few years ago to sailing squibs and still do whenever there's someone about to go sailing with! From there I got crewing on a Corby 25 and am currently in the middle of sailing the autumn league on a puppeteer.

First sailed with a boyfriend 2 years ago...fell in love with sailing, but not him. Took 4 lessons this last May, bought my boat in June...best decision I ever made, although friends often questioned my sanity.

Mostly singlehand on Lake MI in Chicago...and LOVE IT!

Sailor for 4 months!
