The running joke on our boat is that we learned to sail on YouTube.

Seriously though, there are a lot of videos out there that can help you to learn some of the basics and the physics. Beyond that we learned by watching, talking to others, and OTJ training.

Two years and about 1000 miles later we're having a blast and can handle most of what is thrown at us.
