Hello from Coastal Downeast Maine!
The last time I sailed was 50 years ago when I was 15 years old. My wife and I recently retired and moved to Downeast Maine. The first thing we did was to purchase the sailboat we drooled over at the Annapolis Sailboat Show for years, a West Wight Potter 19.
We joined the local yacht club to get a mooring, since the wife doesn't want to be wasting an hour getting into the water and an hour getting out of the water, and 15 minutes driving back. The Mooring is about 4 minutes from our house.
So now at our advanced elderly age, all we have to do is learn how to sail her! We did find a young fella who is as old as I was when I first went out the Chessie. We are 50 years older than him!
