New Sailor; need advice please
I am a new sailor, I passed my ASA course and found sailing challenging but enjoyable. I plan on buying a used 29-35 foot boat that I can stay on for long weekends. I may have a friend stay with me occasionaly. Hunter's and Catalina's are plentiful but strong consideration is going to a Seafarer 30'.
My question for those on the East Coast. I live an hour outside of Philadelphia, about 90 minutes from from Barnegat Bay, Delaware Bay and Charleston, MD and 2 plus hours from Annapolis, MD. I would like some night life nearby if I decide to venture off the boat.
Where would I enjoy coastal cruising as I learn to sail?
Marinas on the Chesapeake are a little expensive; are mooring and a yacht club a good option for me.
Any recommendations on yacht clubs and where to moor the boat?
Thanks in advance. This is a great site with lots of info!
