Sharpening Our skills

We are lifetime learners and have been building our on the water skills over years of bareboat chartering, racing, and also owning a ski boat on Lake Burton.  As we planned our path to sailboat ownership and ocean cruising, there would be lots more to learn! Four day Cruisers University in Annapolis helped hone our electronic navigation, electrical and mechanical boat systems, provisioning and cruise preparation skills. Glenn headed to Amelia Island for a two-day diesel engine class. Pamela headed to the BVI for a week-long live-aboard sailing class – earning her ASA 102 and 104 – now certified to charter a sailboat on her own. All this knowledge …..  we can’t wait to get on our own boat!!
