Just checking, does anyone at all even look at this message board?  Reply if you even have viewed this message, just so we can sort out who is here, or if the board is effectively a dead space.

I am here, check it frequently. Unfortunately, I live up in Redding, otherwise I would be sailing all the fact, I am about to buy a small sailboat on Whiskey-town lake just so I can go sail in the long evenings. 

Life may not be the party you hoped for, but while you're here, you may as well dance !!!

Surprise!  Late to the game, but I am interested in following the message boards.

I am new to Marina Sailing, and I've been reading the message boards.  Doesn't look like there's too much going on in the discussions, but I'm still reading through it.  Maybe the pandemic knocked alot of people out of sailing for a while.

I'm new too as of July 2021 and trying to see how to get started in the group.  I've emailed the MDR group with hopes of a response about a course that they have starting August 27. I'm trying to see if paying for members is worth it. Any newbees getting value out of being part of the group? I was hoping to sign up for the complete or ultimate course but haven't figure out a way to see if it's being offered. I got a response from the Channel Island marina but not the Long Beach one yet from a couple of weeks ago and emailed MDR today. If you've heard anything please post. Thank you in advance. - roberta

Update 8/13/2021 and realized that calling the office is the fastest way to get a hold of people. Got someone after the first ring which is reassuring.

I think the MDR office is the most responsive, the other offices may be smaller with fewer staff.

Richard, Tim S is usually up for a day sail.  He's in the discussion post above.

Thanks, William.

Tim, I'll post here again after I've actually finished the CSC. Summer is ending, but this is So Cal.

Hello All,

Recently retired and would love to sail more often. Please keep me in mind.

Good Morning,

I also check it out.

Hey, I would love some ideas on how to get people more active on the message board.

If you have any please share.

Thank You

I've been a member for a while but am just now discovering the message board.  One idea I have to get people more active on the board is to perhaps make the message board activity more visible and prominent, on the main page for example.  When people see an active board, it's more likely to benefit from network effects and generate more participation.  Just my two cents.
