Re: New to the Art!

Dale: With water levels on the slide I might be wishing it was a trailer sailor. I have to admit I have been forever spoiled spending a fair amount of time up on Superior. Never by sail! I think the experience of Superior burns a place in your soul and leaves you longing for the return voyage. Is this enough boat? With a few adjustments and some proper planning. I think it might be. Will it be next year? I have a lot to learn and need a lot of direction. Just going to see how it goes. Something to work towards.

Thank you for the greetings Faster and Dale. The vessel is an Abbott 22 and will be spending a fair amount of time on the St. Mary's River with one eye always looking west Dale.

Thanks Phil

New to the Art!

Good Morning! It has been along hard road to get here! Twenty years of dreaming became a reality for me this past a year. I shockingly found myself on the water, tiller and sheets in hand on my own boat. It was more than I could ever have imagined. I am new to sailing; but not new to sail. So many questions, so little time. I hope I can contribute something to this forum and learn,learn,learn. Best Regards to all in the New Year!
