Many of us are fortunate to be second- or even third-generation sailors. We started sailing lessons as soon as we could pass the swim test! I will always be thankful to my mom for passing her love of sailing on to my brother and me. My fondest memories growing up center around our club and the Thistle regatta circuit. We logged lots of miles traveling together as a family. After we were out on our own, my brother and I pulled our boat behind our 1980 Toyota Tercel (we learned to draft behind semis)!More
