Back in 2008 at the tender age of 60 I and my wife jackie decided to learn how to sail. In 2013 we bought a live aboard and spent the next 3 years adventuring in the Caribbean, Haiti Cub Jamaica and Dominican republic. Now the book is available as an ebook or in paperback from Amazon. It's called sailors to seadogs and is a must read for all wanna be cruisers.

Hi, I'm a Reinell 22 owner in coastal North Florida. I'm a lifelong dinghy sailor but am now looking forward to week long cruises and in a few years hitting the Carib or great loop solo or with a companion.

Hello, all new to this group. some what new sailor. we have been sailing our McGregor for 2 years now. been taking classes when we can and learning on our own sailboat (NOT a great idea but worth it). Our plan is to retire, get a bigger boat and sail the world. I am in school currently for CIS. so Hopefully I will be able to still work. we will see if not oh well we will manage. Any how totally excited about the adventure when we finally get to do it.

Hello. Our family of 3 + 3 furry critters are 17 days away from flying to Tortola to move aboard our new home. This is a long time coming & still many logistical plans to make and things to pack. Our crew includes Tom and I, our daughter Savannah, age 7; 2 dogs and 1 cat (Slugger, Lexie & Beetlejuice). We decided to get it in gear earlier this year. We placed our house on the market, sold it!, sold our runabout, and a ton of "stuff." Now we're staying at Tom's grannies place until we set sail. On Jan. 6th we'll rent a van from Louisville, Ky. drive to Atlanta, GA and fly from there on the 7th to St. Thomas, VI. Then take a ferry to Roadtown, Tortola where we will spend our first night on "Island Spirit."

Hello all you wanna bes, Just over a year ago we started this adventure and tomorrow we're sitting our yachtmaster theory exams. It's been a monumental learning curve, kicking the old neurons back into learning and remembering all this nautical stuff. We've done a bit of practical sailing in the Med. and around Scotland and Wales and although still along way from being mariners we're on track and still 100% committed to the dream. Next up is sailing in the Dominican Republic in January, slowly ticking the boxes.
