Ahoj from Blacksburg, VA

Hi folks,

I've been lurking for a few weeks, enjoying learning from the experience of the posters on this board. I'm looking forward to eventually (and hopefully) retiring to a boat in the next ten years. In the meantime, I like to race my little Merit 22 on with the local sailing association at Claytor Lake, Virginia. I also enjoy as time, budget, and kids permit, chartering bigger boats in the Chesapeake and the Caribbean.

I grew up sailing frequently with my parents in Portsmouth, NH and surrounding areas and later on the Chesapeake.

I'm looking forward to reading more and possibly posting some.

Thanks to all the great and knowledgeable contributors who make this forum a great sailing resource!

Yes, it is the Virginia Tech Blacksburg. Tech is my alma mater, and, although I no longer attend (by about 20 years) it is still fun to be in a college town. We're fortunate enough to have an active and welcoming sailing association (see Claytor Lake Sailing Association) based out of a marina at the nearby state park.

Sailing in the mountains sure makes racing interesting. There is almost no way in the world to set a mark straight upwind, because in 15 minutes, the wind direction will have changed!
