Hello to all!

Recently I took on the task of preparing an essay for college. It is on the topic of sailing, but there is so much to know about this subject, I am afraid I will end up with 18,000 pages. What are good topics for people who know nothing of sailing, including myself, however my father, "God rest his sole" captained his own vessel the "Lady love". I always new when I was not welcome onboard. "He hung his pants from the Mast". Just because my father was an experianced sailor does not mean that I know a thing, accept, maybe different parts of a ship. Actually my father died young and the ship went up for grabs. I never did get the much envied chance to learn the ways of a sailor, but my dreams are based around it. well... enough of me. Anyone have a subject for the Novice or beginner? One day I plan to own a vessel, but first I need to learn the ropes, and I figured this essay would be a good way to begin. All replies welcome!
