Newbie or not newbie? Hmmm... I was first exposed to sailing in the summer on Lake Winnipeg when I was about 10. Sailed for a couple of seasons and drifted away from it until age 38. Saile a couple of weeks a year with my friend who owned a boat. Chartered a boat in Greece two years ago then bought my own. Weekends and holidays spent sailing. Leaving on a cruise in May.
Yup. I''d classify myself as a newbie. But d*mn I''m having fun learning!
