My only experience yet is a week of sailing a 24" Hunter several years ago on Howard Prairie Lake. It's where I first fell in love with sailing. Hours drifted by effortlessly. Waking up the morning after we spent the night on the boat is one of the more memorable moments of my life. The water was beautifully still with light fog drifting over its surface. My 10-year plan is to become a liveaboard cruiser and recreate those moments every single day. That said, I know a good bit about the parts of the boat. Sail trim will require some refreshing. Traffic was minimal on the lake so I know little about "rules of the road." I'm currently 24 and highly active. My primary activity is parkour, and I also spend time hiking and camping. My other major hobby (as well as my job) is programming and building websites. I love to cook, with my most recent pursuit being nose-to-tail eating. I'm extremely easy- going, love to help, and easily coachable. I have a passion for learning new things and have an extreme attention to detail.
