Another wanna be

Me:Took sailing lessons on butterfly boats 35 years ago at Lake Davenport Sailing Club. Begged rides on the C scows they race here.

Want to:Get a lot more recent experience. Eventually(the sooner the better)I want to get a small cabin cruiser and sail down the Mississippi and hang a left and head to Florida, the Keys, maybe do the Loop of the eastern U.S.. The caribbean islands might as well be thrown in there as far as wishes and dreams go.

Anybody need an extra, free hand in rigging, repair, launching, landing, and or sailing, let me know. Wiling to work for knowledge. I am retired, so I have plenty of free time.

Motorcyclists have a saying, Keep the rubber side down. What do you have, keep the white things out of the water?

Keep the water on the outside and the wind in your sails. Welcome

Re: Another wanna be

As a motorcyclist and a sailor, my favorite sailing motto might be," never approach a dock at a speed higher than you would be happy hitting the dock at." Welcome to the sailing gang.

Re: Another wanna be

Water on the outside, and, hitting the dock. Things to remember.
