Ready to sail
Hi Everybody,

Saved up some money and quit the computer consulting job in order to pursue a long-time fantasy of travel/exploration via sailboat. I have day-sailing experience in small boats on Lake Michigan thanks to a club in Chicago, but I'm looking to try out the full-on live-aboard sailing lifestyle. Don't own a boat yet, but probably will eventually if I get hooked.

I'm going to start up with a live-aboard certification course to get up to speed with bigger craft, navigation, etc. Looking for networking opportunities and to meet like-minded folks with similar goals - maybe we can team up.

My dream sailing experience would be island-hopping in the South Pacific. I'm also interested in square-rigged tall ships - that seems like it would be an amazing experience and great learning opportunity.

Anyway, I'll see you out there in a bit!

Welcome to the Sailnet community. You'll find lots of helpful people on here. Not me of course :) as I'm just in the dreaming stage at the moment. Good luck on pursuing the dream!

think i saw an email saying there was a post about what my dream was.. well it's not being in Ohio! I want to liveaboard, simply, and in warm water somewhere! Should be easy right? :)

That sounds a lot like what I'm going for - do you have a plan in place? I'm looking to do a live aboard ASA certification course by the end of July - probably with the Blue Water Sailing School in Ft. Lauderdale.
