Re: Got Our First Sailboat!

Congrats on the boat! We just bought our 2nd boat a couple of months ago (Irwin 30'). We moved up from a Cal 20 we bought and kept up in the Northern Neck of VA. Had a blast with it but the drive up was getting old as was the condition of the old 1964 Cal and we let it go. But we love the Irwin.

We too have a son that we introduced to sailing and is now 8 and hates to leave the boat to come home. I am doing the ICW next Spring (hopefully) and he insists to do at least a week of it with me. And my wife captains it nearly as much as I do (can't wait to see the comments on that one!).

Enjoy her and teach the little one as much as can be absorbed (start with line/rope handling). Fair winds and following seas.........
