Re: Sailing Qualification Guide


Why not just let people read it without having to "subscribe"? If it's free, just make it free.

Re: New, Scared, Excited, and in love with the the Idea

Welcome, Jack.

The boat may be up to the trip, but are YOU? What sailing experience do you have? It's a pretty unforgiving environment up there. Also, 26-34 feet is quite the range in length which...

Re: Sailing towards our dream
