Hi,

I just started logging on this site today.
I just started sailing last summer, but love it and sail solo about half the time.
I have a Ranger 26 up in Duluth, but live in Chicago. I live on her for the whole summer, and have sailed throught the Apostle Islands for weeks at a time.
My Ranger handles really well and I enjoy it a lot. Freedom and escape. It seems I accidentally got the perfect boat !
good luck with yours, Gregg
