Hello from Tampa

Hi everyone. I've been a long-time lurker on Sail Net and figured it was about time I actually signed up. I have just completed sailing lessons here in the Tampa area. Being a total noob, I was in no hurry to create an account because I obviously am in no position to be giving advice to anyone.

I've been on boats all my life but I never made time to learn to sail. It's been on my bucket list since I was a kid (I wish that term had been coined long ago, LOL.) I can't believe I waiting so long, I should have done this years ago.

Now I'm hooked. I want to thank everyone who contributes to this site. I read it multiple times per day, soaking in everything I can.

For the time being, my sailing consists of using the dinghies at my club (Capri 16.5s) and just getting out there and practicing, practicing, practicing. I'm having an absolute ball.

By the way, my name is John and I'm very pleased to be a member of SN.

Hi John
Welcome. I sail out of Apollo Beach. Just getting started with sailing myself. Having a blast so far, even after a hell of a day yesterday. Hope to see you out on the bay, maybe meet up at Beercan island for some beverages.....best of luck.

Steve

Re: Hello from Tampa

Thanks for the welcome, guys!

Steve, I'm sailing Boca Ciega Bay out of Gulfport for the time being. When I get a boat of my own I plan to cruise your way. Of course, I'm always down for beverages!
