Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
Good to read your thinking of a boating culture change.
Unsolicited advice from an ancient mariner: Get some sailing lessons and rent a sailboat or two before you open your check book.
There's more to sailing than many people imagine. Not least is having a clear idea about what you want your sailboat for. It's often said that the best days around owning a sailboat are the ones before you buy one and the day after you sell it!
There's lots of advice out there on the web, and in magazines and books, and looking for a boat is a heap of fun. Don't rush if you want access to the amazing rewards sailing has to offer. Be prepared for your relationship with your surroundings to change a lot.
