Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hi Folks,
Been sailing a while and planning on taking a 56" yacht from Hamble to Villamoura in Sep 12, but shorthanded. Any specific tips on passage

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hello All,

Yesterday was my first post, and this is number 2. I’ve been reading everything I can and soaking up information like a sponge. We are very new sailors. Our cruising area is currently at a lake in North Texas. We’re leaning to sail through a sailing club on dinghies, and small (23 foot’ish Catalina and Hunter) keelboats. We, my mate and I, are going to crew every chance we get over the next couple of years. The kids (15F, 11F, 4F, and 2M) will also have fun with all of this in the process. I hope they will also learn as much as they want about sailing and seamanship.

The goal is to own a Catalina 27/Sabre 28, etc. within the next couple of years. Then graduate to a mid to upper 30’s mono, then finally to a 40 to 45 foot cat - looking at Manta 42’s and the like. I will retire in about 18 years, and the idea is to sell the house in about 16 years and move to a two bedroom apartment. This is when I plan to look seriously for “the big boat” while honing blue water skills. We plan on cruising almost all oceans and all latitudes. Long voyages and dangerous passages (Drake) will have experienced crew along. Island hopping will be just us with friends and/or family. Also, we have a special need daughter who will very likely be with us 24/7/365. I’ve already thought of how to accommodate her needs into this plan as well.

I know this sounds like a dream, but I already have financial items in place, and my bride is not opposed. I took her on her first sail in a lake a few weeks ago for our anniversary. The weather and winds were perfect aboard the crewed Catalina 350. Sparkling cider, cheese, fresh fruit, and tea sandwiches along with a wonderful skipper and his wife made for the perfect evening introduction to sailing. I've chosen not to tell her about how women should dress on a boat for luck until it's just the two of us out of the site of shore and other boats! You see, my wife looks like Ariel from Little Mermaid - nuff said.

We all know that this isn’t the real sailing life; Smackdaddy started an excellent thread called Reality at Sea that is a more than a bit true to life for long distance sailing. Hope that learning from all the Old Salts out there helps me to be a better Captain and promoter of the sailing life that so many have come to love. Neptune’s definitely got his hook in my mouth!

Fair sailing!

One Shot

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hi!

This is Claire from NYC. Me & my husband recently started to learn sailing under guidance of Offshore Sailing School. We have also created Blog The Sun Over the Yardarm to share our experience about sailing.

I was surfing around the internet for more sailing blogs & forum & landed here. I am greatly enjoying this Forum!

We recently sailed in BVI & now going to Florida!!!
