Hello from Vancouver, BC

Hello! Just joined the community and thought I'd introduce myself. I've been sailing off and on since I was 13, but always on small boats. I owned a Hobie 16 when I was younger, learned to sail on a laser & laser II, and crewed on my family's Jenneau 25.

I'd been looking to buy a larger boat of my own for the past few years, and finally bought an Antrim 27 last year down in the states. I hauled it back up here to BC and have spent the past few months getting it cleaned up and ready to sail. Just had it in the water for the first time this past week and had a blast! Raised a lot of questions for me however and this forum has been a great help so far in my learnings.

Hi Faster - keeping her at Lion's gate marina for the time being. That way I can dry sail her and avoid bottom painting. Probably will spend this summer getting used to how she sails and getting a crew together, but next year I'll be getting into some racing with any luck!
