Chick Sailor in Chicago
 
Hi! I thought I'd finally post, since I've been educating myself through this forum for months (thanks to you, regular posters!)

I bought my first boat this June and have been sailing 3-4 days a week all summer...singlehanding, mostly. Have also started racing on a friend's boat and LOVE it...not to mention the knowledge I gain every week.

Very Cool.
We boated out of Monroe Harbor for over 25 years until we moved to the other side of the lake two years ago. still associate and have a bunch of friends back there.
What harbor you from or is it a trailer sailor?

Hi and welcome- sounds like you are having a great time with your boat. Lot's of information and good people here, I'm sure you'll fit right in.

Monroe Harbor - South end

It's like a little community down there, all of my "neighbors" are fantastic....then there are the powerboaters that are always requesting me to take them sailing.

Very Cool!
We were just back home for the Air and Water Show. Spent a week in Monroe as part of our little cruise.
Had a great time.

If your ready for a bunch of Foolery, Chech out the Poor Man's Yacht Club. They are a bunch of misfits that in gereral know how to have a pretty good time. In fact their big end of the year gathering is tonight.Welcome to the Poor Man's Yacht Club, Monroe Harbor

Thanks sailortjk1! I already know some of those people (Mitch from SNAFU, etc)...

My membership application has been promptly submitted.

I was out for the Air/Water show too (along with every other Chicagoland boater)...couldn't believe how LOUD those planes were.
