Re: Near disasterous first sail
It's a skill. Skills take practice and repitition to hone and polish.
Sailing is not "instant gratification".
There'll be some initial frustration and as you get better, your confidence will improve and a sense of pride will accompany the confidence.
Don't give up, keep asking questions. Keep sailing.
