Re: Don't need no lessons..just go..
..I've heard that certain cruising associations have had differing opinions to the point that they have been banned on blogs/forums..
This has to be among the vaguest things I've read.
This is the "Learning to Sail" forum. What's your point here for beginners? That you can learn without lessons, and that you can venture offshore with no prior offshore experience and learn by doing?
Okay, you can, and they did. And when they do, yes it's worthy of celebration Some can't, and get into trouble as a result, making rescuers have to risk their safety to try to save them.
What do we know, or care, about "blogs/forums" which may or may not have "banned" them, or for what? I might care if you gave more info, but if so maybe it could go over to the Cruising section?
