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.

Go sailing now my brother,
It's later than you think.
