Hello all, I have been a lurker here for about a year now and thought I should come out of the closet so to speak. I am quite the newbie to sailing, but have done some cruising in the gulf islands on the BC coast in the past year. have also taken some CYA coarses in the last Year. I am waiting for the kids to finish school in about 5 years and then hope to cast of the lines and see the world. At the moment I live about 1400 km's from the coast so it's hard to get much water time in(sailing in the muskeg not very pleasant), but work 6 days on 8 days off so I do get to the water from time to time. Hope to soon go to 2 weeks on and 2 weeks of then I can move to the coast and buy a boat to live on and prepare for the dream.

I have found this to be one of the better boards that I have found with lots of information freely shared, without all the mudslinging I have seen in the other forums. At this point I don't have much info to share, but in the future hope I'm able to contribute something to this forum.

Any body on the BC coast ever needing a hand with anything please feel free to contact I come very cheap (free), And am willing to do anything to speed up the learning process.

HI, I would get in any kind of sailing possible. Do some chartering once you are comfortable with your abilities. It is always sad to hear stories about people who really did not know what to expect, and then their boat is for sale. It happened to a friend of mine.

I personally lost a wife over sailing. Make sure it is everyone's dream, and all understand there is all kinds of weather out there. Take it one step at a time before you sell the farm for a live-aboard, and cruising boat. Good luck with your new adventure. For me even the bad weather is good stuff.

Hi David,

Welcome aboard.

You might also put a note in the "crew available" section in case someone wants a local crew in the BC area.
