Re: Howdy from Wyoming
Welcome aboard! If you have the ability to tow a trailer, you will be more successful if you spread your search distance. Wouldn't it be funny to be towing a sailboat over a Rocky Mountain pass in the winter? Only in the best weather, of course, but passing all the skiers and climbers would turn some heads.
I would also highly suggest some professional lessons. Sailing is not difficult, particularly the part about making the boat move. However, it can be very frustrating to pick up on your own and you can accidentally pick up some very bad habits.
One way to get the winter sailing fix and prep for your new boat is to take one of the week long Caribbean live aboard sailing school courses. Getting out of Wyoming in the winter for a week is probably a nice break too. You would come home fully capable of sailing a trailer sailer.
