Re: Near disasterous first sail

I think I had more bonehead days in the beginning than successes, which is why I still go out alone most of the time. So long as you learned something and no one got hurt you won! And yes, 5-10 mph winds are adequate in the beginning. I came in on Saturday when the average was 12 and the gusts were around 17 -- it was enough for me, who might be an advanced beginner, especially since the winds kept building.
