Karen Foster and Jim McBrayer aboard McBrayer's sailboat at the Royal Palm Yacht Basin in Dania Beach. The sailing duo, who met about four years ago as members of Sailing Singles of South Florida, fell for each other during a cruise to Key West.
Navigating the singles scene can be as adventurous as sailing the seven seas — one day gliding smoothly under sunny skies and the next day facing the eye of a hurricane. Sailing Singles of South Florida has experience in dealing with both kinds of challenges.
