Thank you, I love birds and thought the hand painted as a bird was very creative.

Hi Slokaj,

We sail on Lake St Clair in Southeastern Michigan. We are planning a summer trip to the North Channel, maybe we will see you around.

Undine Does lake sailing count? We got our first boat in '96, spent a lot of time out on it. The last 5 yr.s life has gotten in the way of long weekends. Add to that a lake level that dropped to dangerous levels, so not so much sailing. But we will make up for that now that we are retired!

ADMTROX Hi Jacquiline,

Welcome to SN, I just read about your extensive sailing plans. Sounds fabulous, I am a little jealous. lol

TanyaA Hi, everyone! I'm so glad to see such an active group/thread on here for women!

I did not grow up sailing or really on the water at all. My first experience with a sailboat was on my second date with my now husband. Could that have sealed the deal? hmmmm, probably. He had a J-22 that we lake raced/sailed for years. We bought our first boat together a few months before we were married...a Cape Dory 30. Now we have a Crealock 34. We love to weekend sail with a few week-long sails thrown in when we can take the time. No kids but 3 cats, who we like to take along on occasion.

So glad to meet you all!
