Hi Ellen.

Have not heard from you for a long time.

How about you starting it off with telling us something you are working on at the moment or would like to learn for 2007.

Hi All,
I've had a very busy year since mid 2006, including the death of my mother and the resolution of her estate. So, lots of other things on my plate, combined with not a lot of wind, hand surgery, and now- winter in the NE of the USA. I don't have a lot to say, and that's why I'd like to hear from those who have been sailing.
I'm off for a 2 week vacation in Bonaire in about 10 days, and will then be able to answer myself.
For 2007, I'd like to be able to sail a bit more (even a few hours more per week?), and get my hands and body back in shape.
I had developed a problem with "trigger finger" on both hands, the middle finger, and have now had surgery to fix the problem. If anyone else has experienced this issue, let me know and we can can talk about it.
Age isn't a great addition to the windsurfing lifestyle, but it really is a sport for all ages. There are answers to many problems, and this is great forum for sharing our experiences. I've taught and worked with many women, ages 5 to 82, and all of them have had things to share with other women. No offense to the men, but some things are just "girl stuff".
Best to you all
