Took a 2-day course before we'd even decided to get a boat, but that only gives you the barest of a foundation. I think I'll always be teaching myself to sail--with the help of others when I can get them. I watch, listen, read, and experiment, and just try to improve while out sailing. The Complete Sailor was my go-to book, and I still look it over now and then.
