I'm the organizer of the Got Wind and Water Sailing Network. - 'powered' by the meetup platform, but I'm just not happy with the way that 'power' is applied. I'm working with a small group of people worldwide to apply that power differently.

    Hi John- some interesting post on the Got Wind Water Group. when you get a chance I would love your thoughts on Boatbound (boat rentals by owner) concept to get more people out on the water

    Thanks John, I also enjoyed chatting with you. Being the last one out is not as bad as not making it out! You still have some life in those bones, keep sailing and walking. Thanks for hiking with our Wednesday group! Bill

    Hi John, thought of you as we crossed the Richmond Bridge and saw sailboats on the bay - we were coming home from Point Reyes. I may come back for an Ohlone revisit this spring - would enjoy a cup of coffee with you if it can be arranged.

    Hi John, Do you have anymore room on your boat to watch the races?

    Hi John,

    You seem like such a nice and genuine person. I wish your group was in my city!

    Hey John, good to see you guys are still working on this project. I sent your post to a talented web designer named Jay, but not sure if the does group sites. I ended up going to GroupSpaces after dropping Grouply, but it burned me out so I stopped organizing. I might start up again this spring though. Just one thought, if you can eventually make this site very privacy friendly without all the insanity that's in facebook, I think it will sell. Good articles in this sundays NY Times on this.

    Got Wind and Water . . .

    Hi John,

    I am looking forward to learning about sailing and to experience the adventure of sailing. I heard and read that sailing is exciting and relaxing. In the past, I?ve felt that my fear of not being able to swim discouraged me from any kind of water-related activities. Why try sailing now? I?ve been enriching my personal life as well as networking in the recent two years and hope to add sailing to my experience.

    Thanks for the welcome, Eben before the banshee my heart belongs to the floating wooden water magnet of an El Torro my dad and I built.
