Re: Help what sail to raise 1st?

Most of the introductory sailing classes and books assume that you are learning to sail on a small boat. I would re-think your plan of carrying forward what you learn now. Not that you shouldn't carry it forward, as 98% of the time that will work but you must be open to adjustment based on the type and size of boat that you are on, not to mention the conditions in which you are sailing. Another example is when you're told that your boat will tend to have weather helm. A few boats tend to favor lee helm based on their design.
