Just wanted to say hi from the frigid north. I have grown up on the water, and always wanted to know how to sail, but alas, have never learned. I thought that maybe I might connect with some folks on this site that might eventually lead to learning opportunities and maybe some good advice. I am always willing to consider any new adventure. A few stats: I am a lifelong Alaskan, 31, female, and adventurous. I have had some college, and am trying desperately to avoid having to go back and get my degree, so spending a few years sailing around and being a bum sounds pretty good to me. I love travel, beer camping, hiking, and most of all, good friends and adventure! I look forward to meeting you all!
