I know you'll have a great time, just wade right in there and enjoy. I'm still new enough to sailing to remember my first visit to the Annapolis boat show and remember feeling like these guys were speaking another language.It sure is the Solstice, too! We are going to our first ever boating event. It is an open house that the yacht club on Lake Martin, AL has every year. We figure this will give us a chance to see what we really think about all this sailing stuff. We will have the opportunity to poke around in the boats and see what they are like and then to crew with them during the race. We are both very excited!
