Re: Not to be repetitive, but greeting from the Windy City

Welcome. Unfortunately boating can be a bit on the expensive side. However if you go small to start you will still have a lot of fun and keep the costs down. I started small many years ago and really enjoyed it. You don't need a forty footer to have a good sail. Starting small also helps you learn because the gear is more manageable and they are often twitchy, which helps to focus your attention and move swiftly on the learning curve. A twenty or twenty five footer is plenty big enough to start with.
