Re: learning to sail

i suggest you go out with an instructor a few times, whether just you two or as part of a group lesson is up to you. it's more effective to have someone experienced show you, watch you, correct you, and then have you practice. Focus on: man overboard (sharpens mmaneuvering skills), heave to, reefing and then docking under sail, picking up a mooring under sail and anchoring
