1) Gain coastal sailing experience.

2) Continue working and growing the ‘Sailing Kitty’.

3) A jump off location to a warmer locale that doesn’t involve an intensive first major passage.

Here are the areas we’re currently considering.  Please let us know which you would start with and your thoughts as to WHY are greatly appreciated!
