I just joined.
From another "recent thread", I can be described as an "armchair, dreamer, sailor wanna-be"....but thats ok....it doesn't darken my vision.
I grew up on the waters of Lake Erie. Unfortunately as a young adult I got married to a man who didn't like boating. It was "too much work" for him. Sadly, my children did not have the same island lifestyle experiences I had a as a kid. Something I will always regret.
But, things change, now that my kids are older my husband has decided to move on in life and I am free to finally persue my goals.
While I've never sailed, my dream is to eventually live aboard. I'd like a small catamaran that I can handle on my own.
I've been researching vessels and I've chosen the multihull because I like the stability it allows. As I get more into this process of learning, I may change my mind, but for now that is my ultimate goal.
This past month I registered for sailing "beginners classes" at a local Yacht Club. I'm very excited to get started.
I feel like a kid in a candy store!
I'm reading all I can to get a solid foundation on which to build my skills.
I found this website by chance, but I am glad I did.
