Yeah, I know big issue is my sailing coach....he broke his leg the day I bought my I've been teaching myself. He started weight bearing on the leg last week though, and is putting about 30% on it now. He estimates mid to late June and he'll be ready for the boat.

It's slow going as I've been doing a ton of reading and watching videos, then go out and try stuff. I started using my traveler last week for the first time and what a difference that made! I also tend to try and avoid the really strong winds and conditions until I get more experience (and confidence) under my belt. I do need to learn to reef my main.
