Congrats on the baby. The 1st is a pretty memorable experience hey! Also might be good for you to update your profile to add your location so we all know where abouts you sail from. ( unless you're hiding from some rebel Hobie gang
Ha, yeah quite memorable I'm sure, although the last ten days have been a blur. I've had plenty of one-two hour breaks in the middle of the night to catch up on some forum reading though.
I'm in Austin (central Texas) but mainly sail offshore of Padre Island near the southern shoreline of the Tx coast. I sail to fish and have immensely enjoyed the experience so far. Can't quite describe the feeling of catching the wind just right and being propelled forward, face sore from the perma-grin.
