The first time I sailed was the first time I hoisted the jib on my Lancer 25 just past the jetty in Saco Bay, Maine. We sailed for 6 hours that day.

I read "Sailing for Dummies" (yes, it's real) and took a Sailing and Seamanship class thru the USCGA at a local college. 750 nm later, still alive, still loving it.
