New Member intro
 
Hello there. I'm a semi-new sailor. I sailed with my dad a lot, up to about the age of 12 or 13. I'm getting back into sailing and it turns out I forgot a lot over the 20 or so intervening years but it is coming back.

I don't own a boat right now but I am acting as tactical ballast on Thursday's Child but am learning a lot about sailboat racing.

I'm always looking for more experience, so if someone needs some tactical ballast, and I'm not committed on Thursday's Child, I would love to come out and help out.

Welcome orion! Its always nice to see new people coming into the scene. Please note, and I will not be the only one to tell you this, tactical ballast with Ben is probably really fun, but tactical ballast on other boats probably calls for less lube and uncomfortable conversations the next morning.:em1100:

What exactly goes on racing on the Windy Feat?

While I'm sure I can turn a few heads in my foulies, I don't think I have much to worry about. Have you seen the rest of TC's crew? Ben's a looker.

Wood and Fiberglass?:11600: Is that that the GJR equivalent of leather and lace?
