Been active elsewhere, and find I can learn a lot from others.

I used to own a Capri 14.2 (great boat!) I recently (June 2011) upgraded to a Capri 22. I have sailed since I was 10 (30 years), but have only been a boat owner for about 10.

I have literally sailed more this last month than I have in probably the last 10 years, so I am learning lots... but I know I have lots more to learn.

One of the best resources (thank you internet) is you guys. Others who have also done it, been there, experienced it. I find learning from others the best way for me to become a better sailor. Sometimes it is hard finding REAL world (real time?) sailors close by to learn from, so I find these forums invaluable in my search of the perfect trim.

Been a lurker here for almost 3 years. Member for probably 1. I'll start following closer in an effort to learn.

My name is John.
I am a sailor.
It has been 3 days since my last sail, and I am craving to sail again!
I live in NE PA, and sail Wallenpaupack lake (man made Hydro lake in NE PA, it is 13 miles long).
