This is my second attempt to introduce myself. Not sure whether I am doing something wrong. I've been sailing for about 30 years and currently own a Jeanneau 43. I cruise, rather than race, and have done most of it on the Chesapeake Bay. Over the past year, however, I've done some blue water. Took my boat to Bermuda and crewed on someone else's from BVI to Chesapeake.
Boat now hauled for the winter. I believe I may take it to New England next summer.
