Hello, my name is Craig, and in a knee-jerk response to a divorce, I decided I wanted to pick up a sailboat and never be seen again. However, I discovered that jumping on a 35 foot cruising sailboat after only the completion of three ASA courses, was a pretty stupid idea. Nonetheless, I’m forging ahead and learning just about everything on the fly……..and making plenty of goofs along the way.
Please feel free to leave comments on this blog. I am using this medium as a place to describe my travels and mistakes along my journey to become a proficient and more experienced Great Lakes sailor. Soon, though, I would like to head to warmer and saltier water. I am interested in hearing the experiences and stories of fellow rookies as well as seasoned pros. I am especially interested in hearing your ideas and suggestions on how I could have avoided my latest near-catastrophes! Let me have it!
I am also beginning to think a blog would be a great place to comment on and review the many places I have either visited or will happen upon in my future adventures. I will be soon start that project………….
