Re: Overwhelmed sailing novice seeks advice

I for one thank you from the bottom of my heart for not asking about sailing to Australia with just your ASA classes under your belt, and for continuing to participate in your thread with more than just your initial post!

A piece of advice that I would add is to pay attention to learning navigation and rules of the road in addition to boat handling. Unfortunately these are things that you can kind of fake for a long time, and many people do. But these people are not safe and neither are the people around them.

Sailing is something that you can definitely do, and it has the potential to become something that you'll love with all your heart. Best of luck to you.
