Hey PB... long time no hear...
Welcome aboard JoJo... Congrats on the BS... Sailing on lakes can be a very good way to learn... the wind on lakes tends to be less reliable and more fluky than the wind on the ocean or a large bay. As such, it can teach you far more about sail handling, anticipating and finding wind shifts, and things like that, than an equal amount of time sailing on the ocean would, so it is definitely something you should consider.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
