intro: San Juan 21 moving up
I've been sailing about 6 years. What a great thing to have stumbled upon in middle age! Started with a Sunfish at a lake cabin and bought an O'Day Daysailer for use at home. After a couple of years moved up to a San Juan 21. Then got a slip. Love it, great boat, but I'd like to be able to truly spend the night with my spouse. (Any of this sound familiar?) So I'm currently on the hunt for a 25-28' boat with some interior room.
I sail on a huge and deep mountain lake in North Idaho, Pend Oreille. Terrific sailing, mostly lighter and consistent winds, but there are times when the wrathful weather Gods raise their heads fast and strong. I definitely practice heaving-to and reefing when the conditions are mild.
