Welcome to the party, Bill. Sounds like you've done a fair amount of sailing in your life. Glad to have you here. Lots of good folks on this forum. Enjoy the ride.

Sailing isn't a matter of life and death. It's much more important than that!

Hey, thanks for the welcome and back at ya. i've been visiting the site for a year, but just registered. I looked for available crew, but sold my boat. Now i look for rides to interesting places. i saw a lot of the Med while in the Navy. would love to jump back across the pond and see it again from a boat (without the big guns).
