I want to learn to sail.
I'm 24 years old, going on 25, and I'm going to retire in 25 years. When I do my house will be paid off and I'll have a large amount of money saved. I want to learn to sail by then and I want to buy a boat to sail the west coast and to Hawaii whenever I want. what kind of classes and training do I need in the mean time? What is the best boat for a 2-4 man crew? What kind of prices would I be looking at? I was thinking of a 40 footer. Any suggestions?
