Your problem is bigger than can be learned in a couple lessons. To safely sail your boat by yourself you not only need to know how to rig and sail your boat, but minimally how to navigate (piloting), and know the rules of the road.

i will buy another boat in the future so i might as well learn how to sail alone now while i have her
