« on: March 26, 2009, 01:12:20 AM »
Hi. 
Just wonderfing if there are any sailors out there???  My husband and I sail on Lake Champlain in Vermont.  We have a 32 foot Islander sailboat and love to go on long voyages with it.  Would love to hear any sailing stories from anyone out there.

My husband and I just took the American Sailing Association 101, 103 and 104 classes.  We loved it!  Our goal is to be able to charter a boat in the BVI or maybe even the Greek Isles! We don't own a boat yet.

HIGHLY recommend sailing the BVI ... we chartered a 42 ft Beneteau from Moorings in Roadtown, Tortola 2 winters ago.  I had only spent 1 night on a sailboat before our trip so I didn't know really what to expect.  We were out for 9 days and were so sad the day we had to return the boat.  Best places there were Jost Van Dyke and the surrounding Cays, Salt and Cooper Islands and the Baths on Virgin Gorda.  Next time we go (and there DEFINITELY will be a next time ... but we will rent a catamaran instead of the Beneteau) we plan to get to Anegada and the Dog Islands.  Bring mask and fins ... the snorkeling and diving is phenomenal!

My Grandfather was a Captain of a large ship so could be classesd a Sailor based at the ports of Bremen in Germany and has been all over the world on his ship thats now docked near Bremen as a Museum. He died a while ago when I was very young and was my Mums Father and she very proud with what he has achieved.
