Hello from Louisville, KY

I have always had an interest in sailing and have decided this will be the year I start sailing. I plan to go to KY Lake to learn some sailing skills this year and hope to own a boat soon. As of recently I have a dream of doing some coastal sailing but I will take it one step at a time. You have a great web site here. I have been reading here a while, now I plan to get more active. Lots of knowledgeable sailors here, and some comedy too.

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
I don't know what the course is like at Kentucky Lake, but if you're interested in an alternative, not far up the road from you, in Cincinnati, is Strictly Sail, a sailboat dealer where I bought boat stuff for 25 years, when I sailed in that area. They're good folks, and offer a very reasonably priced basic sailing course with both classroom and onboard training that might interest you. I believe the courses begin in May and are offered each month during the sailing season. Their website is at Lessons at Strictly Sail

Thanks, I will check them out. Brookville lake looked nice up that way too.

I attended a wedding at Brookville lake and there were lots of sailboats at that lake.

KY Lake is pretty sweet, but a pretty good drive, isn't it? I used to rent houseboats there, back in the day, when I had Main St. Lounge on 2nd and Main St. in L'ville. Welcome! Cincinnati would be closer and would definitely have more resources.
