Hi there!! We are taking our boat with us, sailing it down to be precise (unless we sell it first). But, my husband has decided he doesn't want to Liveaboard....and I can't make him. So, we'll buy a house where we can either store our boat ourselves, or put it at a marina. At least if we put it at the marina in the same town that we live in, it will be closer to us than it is now...which is 2 hours away. So, it's all good.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

I have all kinds of little sailing plans for this summer. One of the many plans maybe is to get over to land between the lakes. That would be more of a big plan. I will give you a shout if that one starts to happen. I would love to see your boat. They have been documented as a real nice cruiser.
The sailing club keeps us engaged and we have a little one in boy scouts. The club has a race planed for march. I will most likely skip that race. Any month with an R in it is a burr the cold starts in Septembuur and keeps going until the end of April. May does not have the dreaded R Let others chase Ice burgs with a sailboat.
If you are in KY or plan to be It is well worth looking at Cave run sailing.org We have just started or 2014 plans.
Regards, Lou

Remember good boats are hard to find, not so much so for husbands! Just saying!

Get Her On Board by Nick O'Kelly You need this book I wish it was the first book I went to read. You might not get him on the boat but you will have a view that will help both of you. You can get it on the kindle. Get it now, if not sooner, yesterday would be better.
You are doing a lot of the right things.
Best wishes, Lou

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

miatapaul - you got that right!! Plus, once we get the boat to Florida...we can go up and down the Gulf coast in it for extended periods of time. So, it is all good.

Lou - I will look the book up and order it. Thanks for the heads-up. I will also look up Cave run sailing.org....that area is only a little over 3 hrs from where our son lives. Might be a good place to meet up with them over the summer. If we do, I'll let you know.

Happy New Years Eve & Happy New Year everyone!!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

If you end up at KY Lake, let me know. We may be around. Due to my husband's travel schedule, we don't get there as much as we would like but I hope to be there a good bit this summer.

Happy New Year

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Geometryteach - we sure will let you know. We will need to spend some time over there actually sailing this spring/summer before we head out with the boat. Here's to all of us being able to sail more this year than any of us got to last year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

I think this year looks good. The days are getting longer. The cold is going to bite but the sun is with us more each day. I plan on raising my sails more in 2014
Good Day , Lou
