I'm into cruising, but it may be because I don't have the experience to race, or have had the opportunity.

I'm looking at boats, and posted something about it. I'm looking for around a 26 or 27 because that what I learned on and it seems a good size to get experience while cruising as a family.

I'm also into cruising ; So where do you sail from? I'm based out of Ontonagon Michigan, Altho I live in Eagle River,Wisc, It's the closest Big water to me & you got to learn somewhere! So Superior is as good as any --Dale

I've already gotten alot from the site! what a great community.

I've been cruising on the Albemarle Sound. Shallow but great wind, hopefully I'll get to Chesapeake Bay and Pamlico Sound next season.

How is Superior?

Hi All,
I've been sailing for a good while, on just about every type of sailing vessel, mostly blue water. Even sailed one upside down for a bit! I don't recommend it....very poor helm response.....

Hi Sean

Welcome to the SailNet. There has probably never been a better time to buy a boat.

Bold, I just got your visitor message...

Are really you THAT Bruce from the RTB? If you have a BFS hat and a diaper full of oil, it was me!
