SailorBrett is on a distinguished road
Hello there!

Good evening everyone! My name is Brett, and I live in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia. I took sailing lessons when I was very young (10) and I'm now 24. Now that I've graduated college and joined the Navy I've spent some time thinking about what I want to do with my life and what kind of adventures I want to lead. It always came back to traveling and living life frugally, collecting memories and experiences instead of junk.

Which brings me here! I have wanted to return to sailing since that first summer I spent on the Long Island Sound, and I believe I finally have an opportunity to do so. I look forward to meeting all of you!

Re: Hello there!

Welcome aboard and thank you for your service. I really like the Hampton Roads area; it's scenic and has some great water for sailing. Looking forward to hearing more from you!

Re: Hello there!

Welcome, Brett!
So, you're in the Navy now - when do you separate? In other words, how much time do you have to plan your next adventure and get a boat?
