Some very nice pics, did you take them. I would be curious to discuss how one sets up a Coaching Practice. Did you attend Coach U or other credentialing program? It would be an ideal option for me as a live aboard to generate some extra funding for the cruising kitty.
I also liked the dog on the boat pic!! My best gal, Queen Olivia (a pug) just solo'd our boat 2000 miles from Boston to Ft Myers, which be our new home base for a bit. It is at least warmed than Boston Harbor ;-)
Jill and I live in south Charlotte. We had our last anniversary sailing St. Martin, Saba, Eustacia etc. this past August.........and we leave for Christmas in the BVI for two weeks........I think we have the love of the water in common.
I know that lake sailing is very different than the Caribbean, but have you considered sailing at the Lake Norman Yacht Club? We're originally from New Orleans, been in Charlotte 16 years....but just found club 6 years ago. It is a deal.....and we now have 2 sunfish, 2 lasers, 1 optimist, and 1 flying scot.
You'll also be surounded by like minded people!
Great photo's. It sounds like you have done a lot of great sailing. I live aboard (10 years) my 50' 1933 wooden classic in the San Francisco Bay. I have taught sailing in the Caribbean (BVI) and spent many years on St Croix, USVI. I have also sailed from La Paz to San Juan Islands on the West Coast. I am starting a school in Puerto Rico and will be going down there in about a year.
I hope to hear from you.
With smiles and smiles to go.....
"Another question, or if you could put me in touch with someone who may have done this.
My new owner of the Freedom 30 was told to have mast taken out ,so as to add items to the top. Has this been done b4?..kinda scares me.what do you think?
"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well.
I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left me handicapped. I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
"Finally got back on Seaknots. Boat is sold to a family w no experience. He is currently, bringing the boat up to new additions. And doing a great job. We could use some advice on sail cleaning. Any experience in that let me know. Are you…"
