Welcome! Put your fears aside...they are groundless. You will be amazed at how much EASIER and more stable the boat is under sail with a bigger boat and keel. The only thing that you need to get used to is coming into the dock with the motor as it weighs more and has more momentum and you need to practice that a bit. But under sail you will ejoy it so much more AND be able to get to all the nice places you have close by!
