Take a class or two at a sailing school. My husband wanted to get more involved in sailing and I had zero experience. I decided to find a sailing school and take a couple classes. This was the answer in many respects. 1. My husband has difficulty teaching at any basic level. 2. It''s important to feel confident in your skills and instructors offer objective feedback. 3. You get the hands-on that your not getting with your husband.
The list goes on...make lifelong friendships, gain the skills you need in case your husband can''t step in. ETC.
I am now US Sailing cert. for Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising, and will go on to Bareboat Cruising in the spring. It''s been great fun.
