I will be rewiring my boat trailer and constructing a rig to haul my mast and boom while trailering. A few more small items to order from West Marine and I will be in ship shape. Will probably hit a small lake like Deam Lake for my first solo sailing adventure in a few weekends. Hope I don't sink!

The West Virginia Mt. Regatta is this coming weekend. 08- 23,24,25, 2013 It is a fun sailing camping event many of the cave run members make the trip to enjoy Bluegrass bands and good times camping on the Mt. lake Search the web for more info ( cave run sailing. org )
Also coming up later for Cave Run Sailing in Oct. will be our grand annual regatta.
Both of these events are great times in the outdoors.
Kind Regards, Lou

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Hey Lou - wow, that all sounds wonderful. Love Bluegrass - are you going to that? We've never seen a regatta and may have to look at the Oct date and see if we can drive over and check everyone out. Can't make a definite plan right now, too far out, but, it sounds like a good time.

Happy day!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

We finally got the boat into the water. We were getting kind of impatient with a three day weekend and all. So, anyways, I got this Nissan outboard off Craigslist for a great price, but it's pissing raw fuel out of the carb. It has to be repaired. But, we didn't let that stop us. We went sailing without the motor. You know, this was a bad idea, lol. The wind was up, the wind was down, we were not familiar with the lake, and we are noobs. First hour or so went great. We were tacking and gybing until our heart was content. Somehow we drifted into a shallower end of the lake while I was sorting a tangled line... my helmslady was my 9 year old. Lots of stumps, trees underwater, etc. This was the end of our motorless sailing fun. Some nice folks in row boats towed us out of the area and we ended our day soon after. At this point, I'm just going to wait until the motor is there to get us out of noob pickles. This, and I'm going to try to recruit some experienced folks nearby who would like to sail on my boat with me for free seat time/drinks. Lesson learned.

Hey Imasaluki!! You got out, sailed a bit and had a good day. Albeit the little snafu of getting stuck. Your next venture out will be even better!! Woo!!!

What did you Helmslady think of it all?

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Well Gang - We are headed to our boat on Wednesday as we start our 4 day ASA 101/103 course on Thursday. Thank goodness the weather has broken and we are going to have pleasant days and nights.

We are nervous and excited both. There is just so much information to digest.

Wish us luck!!

Getting the boat on and off the trailer was a gold star for me. The rigging standing and in tact at the end our day... even better. You know, the whole tiller concept seemed to be lost upon her. Just confusing, I guess. It's not round and doesn't take batteries or talk to you. It's ok, we'll have better days. And, we'll have our outboard to help us soon enough.
