That's absolutely true. And so, imagine how much more we don't know if we haven't gotten that far! And, as in my case, imagine how disconcerting it feels to know one has forgotten a variety of bits and pieces in absentia. In other words, both those new or old to the sport have plenty to (re)learn, and likely better done when around one another. Why, I bet if Bubblehead invited me for a sail, I'd certainly (re)gain some skill in the process (hint...hint).
