I spent time on a few wind jammers when in Maine on vacations over the years. I've always loved sail boats. Finally I bought a Hunter 23 at my Yacht club, because everyone said "get a smaller boat first" I learned on my own like many others I just went out there after reading a few books. In less then a year I sold the 23 and went for the Oday 30. Which I should have looked for first!
It was said to me one day "you can learn to sail in 1/2 hour, and spend the rest of your life improving how you sail."

"Next best thing to not having a boat? The knowledge from having one!" Denise, Bristol PA, On Tidal Delaware River, Anchor Yacht Club.
