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.

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.

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!

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!
