With all the Lone Star State representation on these boards, I feel right at home already. After lurking for a while I've signed up, even though I'll have little to add.
Over ten years ago I was working in Puerto Rico and a co-worker there with a sailboat took me sailing for the first time. I thought it was great but didn't sail again until a couple of years ago. My wife and I took a cruise that stopped in St. Maarten and there's an outfit there that sails tourists around the harbor in old America's Cup boats and we sailed on the Canada II. That renewed my interest in sailing. I'm determined that this is the summer I learn to sail.
I'm currently looking at sailing schools from Clear Lake to Galveston. If you have any suggestions, have experience with any in particular, or even teach sailing, I'm all ears. And if you are thinking on a Friday afternoon, "I'd love to go sailing this weekend but I really need someone who doesn't know the first thing about sailing and would be good for little more than drinking my beer and telling me lies," I'm your man!
