One thing you may want to keep an eye out for is the offerings up here a little farther north in Colorado. Earlier this year there were quite a few sailboat for sale on Blue Mesa and on Ridgeway reservoirs. I check the Grand Junction paper regularly as well. Where did you find a course out here? I would love to get my hands on one without having to drive too far.

KB7EWA, I sent you a PM with some information and my phone number.

I've been checking the classifieds regularly as far north as Denver. I don't need to buy right a way, so I'm taking my time.

We learn not from the mistakes we make, but the price we pay.

also getting ready to learn..

I am new here! I am in washington and just got a 26' Clipper. I am wanting to learn to sail so that I can take the family out on Puget Sound. I have always thought that sail boats are beautiful! I grew up in maine on the coast, and have been on lobster boats and various trawlers. So now time to learn something new!
