Hola from Texas
 
I'm a brand new sailor who has often had aspirations of sailing the seven seas and with a mourning senorita in every port. I finally took the first step this weekend and took my basic keelboat class. Grew up fishing and powerboating in Galveston bay, but had never been on a sailboat until yesterday. Now that the addiction is confirmed I will be picking ya'lls brains constantly. :)

I'm in the Clear Lake, TX area still btw. So...Howdy.

Welcome jwreck. There are a few of us Texans here. Have fun, and ask away!

Cool! I'm so used to being one of few if not the only Texan on a board I suspect the internet world thinks Texans must be computer illiterate!! lol

I'm really surprised to see Kemah listed. I'm in Friendswood. I took my basic keelboat at South Coast Sailing. :)

There is one crazy Texan here you gotta watch out for....maybe he'll say hi. :D

We went out last weekend and had the place to ourself. But once it warms up, it gets pretty crowded out there.

Grab a boat and have some fun!

A crazy Texan?? Naww, no such thing. Just plain ole Texans that everyone else thinks are crazy! ;)

Welcome jwreck, make yourself at home. :) I mean, unless you're going to take all the other Texans and succeed, please don't do that! :D
