I wish I could be learning to sail in Aruba right now, but I still have to wait a little longer to take my CYA courses.

Re: From Aruba

Thanks deow,
Soon enough you will be sailing. Wind here now is not good for learning. 28 knots with 32 knots gusts...
Enjoy the ride.

Re: From Aruba

This is the dingy I am building:
Boat Number One
In my mind I see her as the tender for my sailboat, which I do not have yet. Used to own a Catalina 22 sport, wonderful boat, and sailed it around the south coast here. Now I am researching and finding my next vessel. I intend to learn more on Sailnet so my choice becomes a better one.

Re: From Aruba

I'm sure. I've built a dinghy too. The step I most loved before launching was completing the planking. She suddenly looked like a real boat.
