should i take more lessons
Surf may not be in the equation! This is how I started sailing when I bought a cottage on the shore. It was in a harbor and came with a sunfish. That''s where I learned how to plan with the currents.
Now that I think back on how I fell off of that thing and swallowed salt water, stepped on the dagger board and scrambled back in. Only sissies used life jackets back then.
I made some long trips on LIS with that boat. I never did like the sunfish however but I did like sailing. That boat was 14'' long as I recall. If that laser is lot smaller!
