Hello, new to this community

Hello Everyone,

My name is Cara, I'm an American citizen who currently resides in Lindau Bodensee, Germany.

I have recently rekindled the idea of learning to sail since the area I live in is a big sailing community. We live at the southern end of Germany where Lake Konstaz is, which is also bordered by Switzerland, Austria and France.

I have always loved being on the water, which is what led me to join the United States Navy and choose a job of repairing ship navigational instruments and submarine periscopes. So I do have a little knowledge with the instruments.

There is a sailing school on the island where I live, however it cost about 500 euro. I was also told by a friend that it was possible to by sailing books to learn about it and then take the test to get certification. But since I'm somewhat naive on the subject I figured I would ask here. What would you recommend? Any information would be helpful.

Cara
