New Boat, New Sport

I thought I would do the right thing and introduce myself, having already spent a few weeks browsing and having made a couple of posts.

I am brand new here, and pretty much new, or renewed, to sailing. I live in Western Colorado with one 25 mile long, but narrow lake nearby. I spent a couple of summers as a kid fooling around on a 12' homebuilt dingy sailor of some sort. I learned some basics there and had a ball, but that was 35 years ago. I then spent a number of years flying hanggliders and learning a lot about wings and airflow, as well as weather. About 10 years ago someone gave us a couple of sailboards which again whetted my appetite for sailing and taught me some things about mast rake etc.

Then, 3 weeks ago, a friend (now known as KB7EWA on this board) took me out on his Cal20, my first time on a "real" sailboat. I was hooked! I thought I might try to sell some gear and find a boat next year (we have a long winter here). But a couple of weeks ago, up popped an International Tempest in my region for next to nothing. It needs some work, but overall is in good shape. I picked it up, worked on it for a week, and am ready to try it out today.

This board has already provided a world of information. Thanks everyone.
