Re: Where are the younger people?

Haha, sounds very familiar; I had a little bit of sailing experience before we took the classes, but my wife had never stepped foot on a sailboat; rather only bass boats with her family growing up. I wish I could have counted the amount of times the instructor told her when he saw the look of horror in her eyes that heeling is, "normal and necessary" when you are sailing towards the wind... now it is a fun part of the experience. Just takes a little getting used to. Add some Pacific wave action to the mix, and you really have some fun.
