Smile Hello from New Jersey

I am a software developer living in south Jersey. My hobbies include building remote control aircraft models, and occasionally flying them . That does not seem to burn a big enough hole in my pocket so I decide to pursue my bigger dream, sailing. I am a complete newbie.

I plan to take ASA 101 as soon as the school nearby is opened. I will be looking to buy a sailboat. In fact I bump into sailnet while browsing some boat sale websites. This looks like a great forum and I look forward to learning tons of knowledge here.

Thank you for reading this.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. You'll certainly found the right place to be given lots of inspiration to follow your dream.

Yet my heart hammers now, yearning anew
wanting the steep salt-water road
longing with lust to roam rough seas, alone
to seek out some far foreign shore

Welcome! There are a lot of us in the NJ area. Where in South Jersey are you? I lived in the Blackwood and Vineland areas for a lot of my childhood.

Hi Tangent

I'm also new to Sailnet and from New Jersey - Monmouth county. Looking to buy a boat this spring and keep it just off Barnegat Bay. We took the ASA 101 class last summer and are hooked!

Looking forward to meeting more Jersey sailors on this forum! :-)

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Christina, BB is a great place to be. (sorry, bad joke, but it was serious!) We were there for part of last season and I liked sailing there. I'm looking forward to splashing soon!

Re: Hello from New Jersey

FinallySailing, jimgo, Christina, chip,
Thank you all for replying. I live near Cherry Hill, much closer to Delaware river than to the shore. Can't wait to take the sailing class.

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Ahoy Tangent.. I think I am further south in South Jersey than most.. outside of Atlantic City here. Welcome aboard!
