Wink sailing after 45 year break


45 years ago I was an avid racer in the International 14 class and spent every minute thinking about how to be better at the tiller. Finally made it to the nationals and then had to start thinking about doing other things - Nam!

Woke up about a month ago and proclaimed I was getting back into sailing after a bit of a break Decided to go the route of a trailable cruiser in the 20-26 ft range. My search for a boat is just begining, so feel free to offer advice and thoughts.

Look forward to using this information resource and thank you in advance for your support and patience.
