Newly here for a returning sailor

Howdy everyong;
The name's Kris and after more than a few years absence from the water, my partner and I have our first boat.

I sailed square-rigs in my youth and crew'd both ferries and larger sailing vessels in Southern California getting people to / from Catalina Island and sailing around the area.

Now, almost 20 years later i can finally call myself a boat owner.. we at least 1/2 of a boat-owning team. We recently acquired a Tanzer 22 a couple weeks ago that had been left to herself for the last many years.

I am hoping with this little boat I can get my sea-legs back and give my partner a great opportunity to learn the "ropes" of sailing. We have talked about retiring to a blue-water boat and seeing the world, but figured it was best to start here to see how well we work together with the little things.

Looking forward to talking to you here and hopefully picking up skills and knowledge I have yet to know.. Maybe even impart a bit of my own should it be called upon.

Re: Newly here for a returning sailor

You could do a lot worse than the Tanzer 22'. Hope yours is the fin keel model and not the centerboard version.

Read the notes section at the bottom of that webpage.
