Just completed Basic Keelboat..

Completed the Basic Keelboat class this past wkend and really enjoyed it. I just found this site and hope to learn more thru it. Ive noticed it has some good info on everything. Hopefully, I can gain more experience this summer and maybe make a purchase of a used boat sometime in the future.

Congradulations Txnative -- where did you take it - i took my first course from an asa instructor in clear lake --
now go out a couple of times and then take 103 and 104 - that is what we did and it really worked - we then chartered a few times while we spent over 2 years looking for the boat we want. found it in a jeanneau ds40 and have been sailing ever since - by the way the more we sail the more we realize how much we don't know so we have to sail more to learn more.

Clear Lake/Galveston Bay

Another good resource in this area is the classes at Higgins,Smythe,and Hood Yachts. Jeremy Hood is a proven bluewater sailor, and quite knowledgeble.

I'm currently at Marina del Sol doing my refit (D-5), so if you happen to be around, give a shout.
