A good start...
The ideal of cruising on a sailboat has always provided a bit of stress relief whenever New York City has started to get to me. As one might guess, the last few months have made these mental vacations more necessary than ever (we live 1/4 mile from the wtc).
The catch in all this is that I''ve never spent much time on a sailboat. I grew up on a lake and owned a sunfish for a couple seasons, I''ve also been out in LI sound a few times with friends, as has my wife. But we hardly have taken it seriously.
In light of all that''s going on in the world I can''t think of any reason to put off experiencing the reality any longer.
That said, my wife and I are thinking of chartering a crewed monohull in March or April of 2002. we''d like a captain that can show us a good time as well as educate us. Really, we''re looking for a good start...
Ideas, suggestions etc. from the forum would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
