Gulf Coast

Hello everyone, Is there anyone out there from the Gulf Coast? I spend hours on this web site and never see anything about the Gulf. I am very green. I have taken a one day sailing course and have purchased a old Newport 16. Currently I am sailing on a small lake because I don't trust myself to get back to my starting point. Docking (putting the boat back on the trailor) so far is a nightmare and it is a tiny boat. Sometimes when my boat is going very slow it just spins around and heads back where I came from no matter what I do with the rudder. Help, What am I doing wrong? I don't remember anything about this from class. Of course we were on a much larger boat. Thanks for any advise
