Looking for sailing partners in Denver, CO, USA

I've been sailing for two years and am anxious to find some folks in Denver, CO with experience to sail with. I maintain a membership with the Victoria Sailing School's Why Buy Club - which gives me access to J22s at Cherry Creek Reservoir, not too far from my home. They have three J22s there, but my best friend who sails doesn't live here and the club here doesn't have an active message board with members/class graduates.

They have three roughly four-hour slots per day and I usually try to go once a weekend. I'm interesting in folks with enough experience we can hopefully learn from each other - I'm anxious to try various maneuvers with another hand.

I'm 44, don't live in my parent's basement, and work in IT; for whatever that's worth ;-)

Reply here or via PM if you're interested!

Hi - I live in Monument and have been looking to get back into sailing. I grew up sailing on my Dad's Sea Sprite in Long Island sound for many years, but except for a couple of days on a Sunfish it's been 30 years

As a new sailnet member I don't have PM privileges yet but you can contact me at dan.j.sullivan at comcast dot net

regards,
Dan

Joel, Dan, have you been to the Rocky Mountain Sailing (rmsail.org) web site? It's the regional sailing organization that coordinates activity between sailing and yacht clubs, racing fleets, and so on, in your area. It has a bunch of links on its web page to those groups and has people who might be able to point you to sailing opportunities.

A little off topic.... I went to school at DU and used to windsurf at Cherry Creek all the time. Cold as F but needed a fix once in awhile. Didn't even know or ever remember seeing boats there.

Maybe a bit back on topic.... check, or list at the local colleges. I'm sure you'll find someone, I would have jumped at the opportunity.

Have fun.

Re: Looking for sailing partners in Denver, CO, USA

Hey, Joel. I know this post is ancient but I can't send you a PM yet. My name's Owen and I live in Denver. I stumbled upon your post about heel in a J22 and saw you were also from Denver. I just finished classes at VSC and passed the ASA 101 and 103. I belong to their club and have sailed on Cherry Creek Res. a couple of times now with my sons and / or wife as crew. Anyhow, if you need someone to sail with let me know. I'm a software engineer as well.
