Re: asa school vs buying own 20-30ft and teach self?

This post merits more than I can type , but I learned at the age of 12 on a 12' catboat. Sailed on Long Island Sound 6 miles across from Greenwich to Loyds Neck (I think)( my parents never knew). Learning to sail on a small boat teaches sailing, in my opinion, if you can make a small boat go the lessons apply to larger boats you just have to learn more controls/systems. If you buy a 25' or larger boat you will have to learn systems as well. Fresh water, head plumbing (porta potty/waste tank), engine, electrical generation, lighting.. I currently sail a 42' ketch with my wife. Get a sunfish.
