It was a dreary spring day in Buffalo as I pulled into RCR Marina. With my new gear in tow, it dawned on me that it had been almost three years since I last set foot on a boat. How could I have let that happen? Life happened. My last year living in Boston was so busy, I couldn’t even find time to go out with friends who had boats. When we moved to Buffalo, I thought I would have to kiss those days goodbye for good. I didn’t know anyone here with a boat, and assumed the sport was just as exclusive as it was in Boston.
