New member blown away!

Hello!
I caught the bug years ago, took the Red Cross sailing class and played around on lakes for years in my Phantom. Now thinking about cruising and just discovered SailNet. It blows me away how wonderful it is for all these knowledgeable people to share what they know!! I learn something new every time. I'm looking forward to expanding my horizons in many ways.
Thank you moderators and contributors for this great resource and community!
Dee

Welcome! Some of us might even be so wonderful that we'll gladly share what we don't know, too. Seriously, there's a good community and great knowledge here.

Thanks Mike!
I'm in Orlando, FL where we can sail year round with occasional breaks for hurricanes.

Thanks rg!
Yes, I'm sure there are those whose knowledge is only exceeded by their hubris but it seems they get called out on it quickly here!

Re: New member blown away!

Okay, so you don’t only get called out for being wrong, but also for “fancy talkin'."

In keeping with the SailNet tradition of correcting mistaken assumptions, I’m not a “feller.”

Lovin’ the banter and thanks for the welcome!

I stand corrected.

You're welcome for the welcome.
