New to sailing and need to learn more
Hello, I'm new to the forum here. I've been around the water all my life, growing up on the water and summers near Church Creek, MD. My grandfather always had several powerboats small skiffs for me to fish and crab with. I'm currently a civilian working for the Coast Guard in D.C. and my sons are involved in Sea Scouts, but my real boating and sailing experience is about two decades old, other than kayaking and canoeing. I just got back from a week-long cruise with the sea scouts and realized I'm more than a little rusty, although I have experience on 52' power and 36-47' sailing vessels.
My wife and I are entertaining the idea of going in on buying a sailboat with my father-in-law, so I joined the forums to "learn up". Thanks!
