Not only did I teach myself how to sail, BUT, I did it UP HILL, IN THE SNOW,
and BAREFOOT! You young folks today are soft I tell you!
But, yeah, I read a "How to sail" book, joined a couple of forums (ahem), listened, looked, learned, tried, failed and I'm still here to talk about it. Of
course, the learning never ceases as "When you're green, you're growing...when you're ripe you're rotting". Cease to learn and you cease to exist. (wow, that's a lot of deep thinking for the a.m., eh?)
