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.....
I feel we should watch the weather...I don't want to go if rain...but we can motor in marina...and near by....my first sail.....I don't know how long you can stay... maybe the sail group below and rain would be bad for my first sail?
I am thinking that since I only have Thursday to stay overnight this week, as I have to leave Friday AM for Tampa, I could possibly come during the end of the week 7/10 and stay the weekend. Perhaps we would have better weather then? What are your thoughts? Viki
Yes, and if I Pack up the interior and remove my outside plastic..see pictures....we can motor the boat a bit? Remember I know nothing...are you a captain...I know you have experience...let me know...Lola
"Wayne, yes I'm still out here. She's looking good and you'll love her. The 38.1 is a perfect size for 2 people with occasional guest (s). Plus she's a sweet sailing boat. I'll attach a short video of one I was delivering…"
"Sam, I am just in the process of replacing both of my eyebrow windows. I have the new ones from Beneteau and am talking with dealer in Florida re Bebeteaus advice. It would be helpful to talk to you about your experience. I have never seen…"
Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response. Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
