New to sailing but not to the seas
Hi everyone, not really sure what to say, but ill start with the fact Ive never sailed before, I grew up in eastern Canada and when I was very young in Ireland. and from a young age Ive always been at sea...Ive always wanted to travel but hate the idea of being a tourist everywhere I go, I always wanted the ability to come and go as I see fit and for the last few years Ive been saving up to finance the cost of buying and renovating a barge, I'm a writer by passion and small coffee shop owner by..well by passion as well, but that was just a means to an end, which is my dream...traveling the world and writing...I always thought my writing would pick up and make enough to cover the cost of a powered boat...which I honestly don't think will happen for many years yet...but last summer a friend of mine invited me to come to Vancouver to go sailing with him and his family, I was so could up in having fun that the idea of sailing never even crossed my mind until recently, I came here im hopes of finding advice and maybe some couching to see if sailing may be able to fill the gap that a gas powered vessel could not...wow thats a lot already, ill leave it at that, thanks for all your help and support.
