Hello

Hi My name is Tom. I trailer sail a old Alacrity 19 twin keel sailboat.I live in New Jersey. It took me 5 years to make Scaramouche (my boat) ready for water. I have sailed on Union Lake in N.J. the Delaware Bay and the Sassafras River to the Chesapeake Bay.

Hey there. I live in Kansas and just brought my Alacrity 19 home 2 wks ago. I am just starting the restoration process. I hope it doesn't take me five years though. I don't think I can wait that long to sail her.

Alacrity

Sounds great Tom! This is not only my first Alacrity, It's my first sail boat period. I have owned several power boats but have always wanted to sail. Finally going to make that Happen. Can't Wait.

I'm new to this site and haven't worked every thing out yet. Sialing is a lot more work than power boating and you can't be in a hurry to get anywhere.I think it's the best way to travel.You can google alacrity and find the sites I wanted to show you. Good luck ,have fun and sail safe Tom
