Never been sailing

Hi all,

I have wanted to sail since I was a child, I have now decided that I will start. I am 34 and have booked a level 1 Dignhy sailing course. I can not wait to start.

I am very well travellef in Europe mostly overland by car, I am intending on going on a bike tour, but the my aim for next year is to do it in a sailing boat. After I have done lots of courses and had lots of practice.

Welcome aboard! Tell us more about you, like where you're from, whether you're sailing alone or with a family, etc.

Re: Never been sailing

Hi and welcome from Essex ! Once the sailing bug bites you there is no turning back. Dinghy is a nice intro into our addiction. Also, if you have a marina close by, put a sign up on the noticeboard. There are many who are looking for someone to give them a hand and you will learn a lot as you go along.

Re: Never been sailing

Agreed...as many have stated quite explicitly...sailing grabs you. It can be an obsession...but you will love it. Look at my handle...chrissailorman...it has a way of defining you!
