Hi Everyone, New Sailor Here!
Hello everyone, my name is Greg and I have a problem... o wait :P
Umm I am 22 and have been around the ocean and boats my whole life, we've always had power boats though, and my fiance's family is into larger powerboats. But me, I've always had a fascination with sailing.
So I finally decided to step away from all the power boating(although I'm sure not going to give it up, can't fish as easily on a sailboat :P) and learn to sail.
My first step was to purchase a Walker Bay 8' Sailing Dinghy, I bought it for $400 delivered to my door from a friend at my fiance's families marina. I also have been given an ancient 12' Catamaran that needs new sails.
I have already named my walker bay the "Puddle Pirate" because pirates have been my thing for a long long time. From ren faires to having a full library of nautical history and pirate history books I figured it fit quite well.
I figured I'd start looking for forums and communities to talk to as I begin my ventures.
I also decided for everyones entertainment and my probable personal dismay I will keep a blog of my sailing ventures from start to hopefully no end at runningbeforethewind.com.
