I don't think that Xort was trying to be a dick... he's got a valid point, in that learning the basics of sailing aren't all that difficult. One book I'd highly recommend you get and read is Dave Seidman's The Complete Sailor. IMHO, it is probably the best written sailing primer that covers a broad swath of subject matter.

Bobmcgov: yeah i am from Summit and i have a few friends that are a part of the Dillon yacht club so that may help out a little bit. but I am in Gunnison now going to school at Western state so southern WY isn't that far at all. That would be awesome to go out with some one next year once the ice melts for sure. thanks for the offer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
