I have been told that I an a very good Skier...I have never paid for a single lesson ..just hung around great skiers and copied what they did...I suggest the same thing with learning to sail...hang around some club sailors and you will become one...
I had know one to tell me you could get on a boat as crew when i was young just by asking around on the docks..I thought you had to be a rich kid to get near a race boat... I missed out on a lot of free learning I'm now having to figure out.
"Go Simple...Go Large"
Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.
The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
