Greetings from Southern NH

Newbie sailor here hailing from Southern, NH. For those of you outside of New England that think NH is somewhere near the Artic Circle, I'm actually located about 45 minutes from Boston.

Anyway, looking forward to learning from y'all!

Greetings...the wife is from Nashua. All her yankee family still up there. We're in the Great State of Texas...the land of year round sailing. We did however wake up to three inches of snow yesterday. Like they say...if you don't like the weather in Texas, wait a minute.

Re: Greetings from Southern NH

Whitey,

Where you sailing? Out of Great Bay? Lake Winni? What's your boat? We've sailed to Isle of Shoals once (so far) and have had a few nice nights at York beach (Short Sands) but most of our sailing is out of Portland and northeast. If you're a trailer sailor, there's a great launch by SMCC that puts you a couple of hours from Harpswell, Freeport, Bailey's Island and hundreds of other locations. If you haven't got training yet, the USCGA power squadrons are starting up a barrage of classes. I highly recommend at least the one on . . . oh wait! NH! You'll need training anyway just to get your required permit! Good! Pay attention because not everybody in Maine has a clue on the water.

Fair winds my Southern friend!

Not sailing anything just yet. I'm quite actively on the trail for a good Pearson 28 or 30. I'm open to other makes a well but really like the build quality and wallet friendly price point.

I'm a newbie sailor so not quite sailing anything my own just yet. I'm planning a Pearson 30 (or possibly one or two other makes) in the next few weeks.

I live just outside of Hampton Beach so I'll likely moor in that area. Having said that, I like the option of mooring in the Salem, MA area for the much shorter hop to Boston and the Harbor Islands. Of course if I do that, I've got to contend with traffic just getting to my boat. So many decisions.. All good problems to have, I guess!

I've always loved ME so I'm sure I'll be seeing you on the water!
