Geo,

Buy a trailer sailer in the 20 foot range and sail every chance you get. You'll make lots off mistakes, most won't be life threatening. Learn to laugh at your own buffoonery and beat the other guys to it. Most of all, have fun and sail your ascot off. Experience can't be taught in a class, it can't be acquired through time, it can only be earned through the school of hard rocks.

Don
