My name is Kasey and I am 21 years old. I was taken sailing once as a child and it has held a spot in my heart ever since. In highschool I met my now husband Chris. We decided that when we retired we were going to sell everything we owned for a liveaboard and spend our old age exploring....
Well it didnt take long to scrap that idea. We cant wait that long. So I bought a little 13ft sail dingy to start learning to sail. The plan is to spend the next 5 - 10 years learning to sail and building the boat for our great escape. Then we will bid farewell to all we have ever known.
We moved out to the coast. Even though my husband now has a 70mile commute one way to work, we have deepwater access up to our house.
We are looking into purchasing an actual boat as opposed to my dingy. We have looked at a couple and narrowed it down to two. Both are 23ft.
I spend a lot of my free time wandering around the marinas looking at the pretty boats just sitting there. Halfway hoping to make some sailing friends. Alas, it is winter. and even in beautiful sunny florida that scares people away from the water. Hopefully when weather warms up I will start meeting some people on the water and get on the water myself....
By the way, I have no idea how to sail.
I just read books, then get out there and wing it.
