Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Grew up sailing on the Chesapeake in an Irwin 37 ("the hundai of boats"); lived aboard in San Francisco for a year in my early thirties restoring a Columbia 34 ("the yugo of boats"), then returned to NYC and sailed a Pacific Seacraft Mariah 34. Now in Venice CA, and looking for a good vessel to sail to Hawaii. Considering a CT-38, but also looking at a bunch of others. Input welcome.

Hi all,still a relativ ally new member ,well got my CL 16 up from calgary this week and set it up yesterday in the yard checking for problems,and figuring out how it all goes together ,my son came out for Father's Day to help get set up........and today,although rain and little wind this morning we decided to take it out this afternoon,unfortunately by the time we had her launched the wind came up a bit,much white caps in the gusts,..but then it would be okay so we got it all together( ERICH has taken sailing courses a few years ago) and we're just settling into a good start when...the rudder broke clean off right at the waterline ,needless to say all heck broke loosenot sure all ,a bit of a blur,I almost got the piece of rudder(not sure why but almost jumped in to get it,I thought it had jumped off the pins) but what good is a broken rudder,,, any way course we couldn't get the sail down,boat spinning around and heeling this way and then that way but we finally got it down,and ERICH got control with the ji sail,and me with a tiny plastic paddle trying to steer somwhat ,could not get back to the launch we left from so we worked our way( very stressfull) down and across the lake to another boat launch in around a point in a quieter bay,got in just like it should have gone and got my phone from my wet bag/dry agenda called my daughter,who watched the whole thing from a friends cabin deck with binoculars...all in all intresting and ..guess I need a new rudder!!

Thanks Trunorth for advise. Right now my wife and I are land locked here in Arkansas, but there is a small lake sailing club here that offers 3 day sailing lesson twice a year. We plan on starting there. We missed the first session because of a schedule conflicts. Seasoned sailors volunteer their time and their boats to introduce sailing to us new comers. While we wait for the next class my wife and I are preparing by reading books and such and going through a boaters safety class.
I like the idea of crewing on someone's else boat to start.
Thanks again.
