Welcome Jody. Not sure what your'e looking for but hogs advice is good. Talk to the other sailors moored around you, read all you can on here(and the other sailing sites), and ALWAYS have fun. Patience, and a "I'm here 'cuz it's fun" attitude is all you need for now,, the rest will come. Also, check with http://www.kdwp.state.ks.us/news/boa...nts_and_safety
they'll have all the info on safety and outfitting for your area.
