Hello y'all!

Just wanted to say hello, I've been lurking for a while and decided it was time to chime in. My husband and I have been sailing for about 6 years now, but since we've had 2 kids in that time, I realized I spend more time taking care of them and less time thinking about sailing (and forgetting everything I know). So I've been reading and learning a lot from you all...thanks!

Welcome!
The solution is to bring the kids on the boat, and forget everything else!

Re: Hello y'all!

Hat tip to you WanderingStar. I remember when my kids were young. Between saving for a house, working every hour I could and then caring for the kids when Mom was working, my sailing lust was confined to longing for my neighbors Ranger 22' which was for sale on it's trailer in his yard. I never bought that Ranger, and regretted it the rest of my life.

Keep it up guys, you're doing it better than I did.

Thanks Tropic, but raising kids is the most worthwhile thing ever done. Hats off to you.

Thanks for the motivation! I'm just glad we get to have kids AND go sailing!
