|slokaj||I spent summers in grade school on my father's day sailers on a small inland lake in southwest Michigan, (mainly as a passenger), then nothing for almost 20 years. Got started again a few years ago when my husband got interested, took lessons, bought a Hunter 170 for use on that same inland lake in Michigan, then realized we needed a boat closer to home (Chicago north shore) and bought a Newport 28 for use on Lake Michigan. Now we can sail wherever we happen to be in the summer.|

|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!|

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!

Signed up for coastal cruising course and who knows what thereafter... I'm definitely committed! Just wish we had more wind here in San Diego - but winter's coming!|
