New Sailor in CT

Hello to all,

I am a sailor two ways: by profession (US Navy Submariner, not too many sails underwater), and now recreationally on the surface, after a few classes.

Many members of my family have sailed both recreationally and professionally, but having grown up in the Shenandoah valley, I didn't have much of a chance to learn. I recently did however, and it's pretty much all I can think about now.

I may be obtaining a boat soon, but will probably be lurking for a while to learn as much as I can, Thanks a lot!

Welcome. Do you prefer a full or fin keel on your submarine? This kind of thing is important around here...

LOL. It's like a disease. What you said also happened to my wife and I. I now seem to always take note of wind and direction, tides and currents, and obsess about my next chance to be tiller and sheet in hand.
