Beginning Sailor

Hello-

I took a beginning sailing class through the local community college last fall (2011) and now I am totally hooked on sailing! I joined the local sailing club and have been crewing at some of the club's races. My dream is to own my own sailboat and go cruising/gunkholing. I've joined Sailnet to learn more about sailing and hopefully, to meet other sailors.

Thanks!
Teresa

Re: Beginning Sailor

Welcome Teresa!

You can learn more than you ever thought you'd want to know about sailing by hanging out here and reading the forum posts. Depending on where you are located, you may be able to find some Sailnetters who get together, too.

Good luck with your goals!

Re: Beginning Sailor

Yes, welcome aboard. Lots to learn both here and on the water. You're already on the right track so when it comes time to get your own boat you'll have some good ideas about what you want.

Sailing clubs seem to be getting more popular.. makes sense in a lot of ways, but there's nothing like getting up one nice morning and just 'deciding to go for a sail'... tough to do without your own boat.

Re: Beginning Sailor

Welcome! Ask a lot of "dumb" questions, as I did, and learn a lot!

Re: Beginning Sailor

Welcome, Sounds like you are on a good path. When it comes time to buy your first boat jump right in. Don't worry if your first boat is a smaller boat because a smaller boat that you can afford is a lot better then waiting forever and never getting the bigger boat you want. Good Luck, Richard
