Bit by the Sailing Bug in Louisiana
My wife, Megan, and I are in our mid 20's and are eager to start down the path of becoming life-long sailors together. I have only been sailing twice in my life, and both times were on rather large boats in the BVI's/USVI's. I am lucky enough to have a friend whose father has a rather lengthy sailing resume, and he is the person that got me interested/hooked. The first trip was a 4 day excursion on a 64' ketch, and the second was 6 days on a 51' sloop. I participated as crew on the first, and my wife and I were crew on the second.
I can't think of anything else I would love to do more than cruise aboard my own sailboat. My wife is not quite as finatical as me, but is interested and wants to learn as well. Being located in Baton Rouge, LA, we are looking to begin our journey on the waters of Lake Pontchartrain. Having a decently large sailing community there, we hope to meet up with some folks from the same area either through clubs, word of mouth, or forums like this one.
Thanks for reading, and please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you are Lake Pontchartrain bound...
