My parents had a Hunter 37′ growing up, but I didn’t do anything more than crank a wench when my dad told me too. More than anything else, my parents hammered safety basics into my head.
When I moved to CA from the East Coast, I crewed on a Tartan 30′ for super casual beer can racing out of Redwood City. Since moving down to San Diego, I’ve taken a few small boat sailing classes just to reacquaint myself with the basics.
Really I’d like to get out on the water in any capacity, whether its casual cruising or competitive racing. I still have a lot to learn, but what better way than getting out and doing it?
