I'd have to check multiple boxes on the poll.
Went out once with a friend in late September.
Bought a boat 3 weeks later - sailed the boat all that winter.
Annapolis Sailing School 3 day class in May, The total time on the water did not equal the time I already had.
Bought bigger / newer boat in June, sailed it 4 years with a couple BVI bareboat catamaran charters thrown in.
Bought Catamaran in May last year.
Mostly - self taught, taught by friends
