Jojo...awww shucks...thanks. Keep the dream alive...I think what you need to do is get your certifications then guilt trip the hubby into a bareboat charter somewhere warm with crytal clear waters and sugar sand beaches...then you'll have him hooked!

Jojo... you also might want to read Debra Anne Cantrell's Changing Course and give a copy to your husband.... normally it is the wife that needs convincing...but it might bring him around a bit...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Women singlehanders

I just found this thread and am so pleased. I am over 65. Did a lot of sailing in my younger years but got tired of always having to find some guy who wanted crew. Decided to buy my own trailerable sailboat and purchased a 15 foot Montgomery. You talk about getting looks from the men at the launch ramp!! You know, you have to step the mast, set up the rigging, launch off the trailer and then do the whole bit in reverse. But I have to say, I have had some laughs watching men retrieve and launch their boats, both motor and sail. I singlehand, and also, take grand kids out, also my daughter who as an avid windsurfer, I thought would be more help at sailing than she is. So even, with passengers, they are really not crew. I am presently living in Utah and sail the Great Salt Lake as well as the numerous fresh water lakes in the area. I love the GSL, motor boaters seldom venture into it. No fish!! Ha! Ha!

To JoJoRocks from Atlanta

I was living in Dalton GA after being in FL most of my life and missing the water like crazy. There are some great lakes near Atlanta, one very close is Lake Alatoona. That's when I bought my Montgomery. And the South Winds Sailing Club meets at Alatoona. Great sailing and pretty consistent winds there. Right off I-5 can see it from the road.

Hi to all,
It has been a while since I have been on. Jo Jo, you keep up your "dream"!!! I concur..."Changing Course" is a really good book. I would like to share my excitement and my dream come true with this group. On Saturday, June 23rd at 1703, I crossed my wake on the Detroit River and finished my Great Loop trip. Doing the America's Great Loop (the inland waters of the eastern U.S.) single handed, was my "dream" and I hope that all of you get to see your dreams come true, also. I started my 5400+ mile trip on July 31st 2005. I had hoped to finish last October, but mother nature and Lake Erie had different plans for me and I had to put my Indigo Lady on the hard in Dunkirk, NY on Oct. 21st/06, but not until after I had had the fun of being in the freak Friday the 13th (October) snow storm in Buffalo. I have been told that I am the first woman to complete the Great Loop, single handed, in a sailboat, but I am still looking to see if I can find another woman. If you know of anyone, I would certainly love to hear from you. So, for now, I will allow myself to be the first "Documented" woman to single hand America's Great Loop. I tell you this to encourage anyone and everyone to always keep your dreams alive and be brave enough to take that one unexpected step beyond the social norm. Good luck to all of you with your sailing. maryellen

Hi Camaraderie. Most of the trip is a motor boat ride or motor sailing since one has to take down the mast to go through Chicago and then again for the Erie Canal, but I did get to sail in Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Mobile Bay, Gulf of Mexico, the Chesapeake, the Delaware, Atlantic Ocean, Hudson River, Lake Erie and a few more places along the way.

This weekend my husband and I will take our "new-to-us" boat to the North Channel (above Lake Huron) for a month. Would be great if there was anyone from here who would be up there too, to meet up with.

Fair winds,
maryellen
