Re: Near disasterous first sail
As a newbie myself, I enjoyed reading your post. My dinghy is 16 feet, but it still sometimes feels pretty big when things are going wrong...and boy do they go wrong fast!
Question: I only have a trolling motor to get me out of the marina. So (most of) you guys keep it idle while hoisting the main? I would cut it, then get pushed around because I have no one on the tiller. Should I rig up a line so the tiller stays straight?
