Lake sailing in Utah?

Buy it and go sailing. Stop by the YC and see if there's an RKI ta invite aboard

Big, open water (readcean) Go ASA

Next qualifier would be cost of boat.
A $2500 25 footer can be replaced and a $1200 course would be like paying a $1000 surveyor If yer talking a new, $50k+ boat; the cost of a course is quite a bit smaller percentage-wise

HTH,
Paul
