About: At the birth of this blog we've been married 36 years and we are getting our Second Wind, they're called "grandkids"!
Extra: We sold nearly everything we owned, including our 32' Beneteau in Texas, to be new grandparents in Iowa. The oldest is now 5 y/o and it's time to teach him to sail. Fall of 2016 we bought a teaching vessel and named her Second Wind.

The Winter Wait

My first entry! We finally bought another sailboat to begin our journey of teaching our grandson how to sail. We bought a 16' Gloucester this Fall but with the Iowa winters being so fierce she's on the hard until this Spring. The itch has begun!
