If you cannot sail then you should take some basic lessons. It is very easy for a novice to make a simple error that had dangerous consequences.

And do wear life-jackets.

Raising the sails on land is not a problem on a calm day but could be a disaster in a moderate breeze.

Good luck and I hope to meet you cruising the Caribbean one day.
