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.

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.

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.
