I just joined, have been reading some of your posts.....you appear an experienced, knowledgeable group of sailors. As for myself, I have been sailing for about 38 yrs, been a boat owner for 28 yrs and mostly single-hand my 27 ft sloop on Lake Ontario. I have been lucky to sail with others on their boats & have done some chartering. As well as sailing on L. ON & L. MI, I have done a delivery from Annapolis to Fl, sailed to Bimini, both coasts of Fl, BVIs and the Agean along the coast of Turkey. All these experiences just make me want to do more. I look forward to getting to know other sailors to exchange knowledge, learn more and if it works even sail together.
