need to learn to sail in tampa area
Find an experienced sailor in your area and bribe him/her (flattery and/or a beer should work) and within 30 minutes you should have the idea down. Otherwise the explanation requires too many sailing words, which then also need to be explained, and besides you won''t remember the concept when you need it.
My advice - get someone to show you as it''s the one hard concept in sailing.
