newbie questions

The best place to learn to sail is . . . on the water. Before buying yourself a boat hang around the local sailboat racing scene, volunteering to serve as crew. Crewing on a racing boat you will very quickly learn more about sail trim, rules of the road, how to make good distance to weather, and all sorts of other good things. All at somebody else's expense. After you get a reputation as good crew, you will have lots of opportunity to crew on different types of boats, which will help you decide which boat you want for yourself. Furthermore, one of the joys of sailing is the really nice people you meet. Enjoy
