Thanks a lot!
The way I see it, this sailing thing is pretty easy, sheet it in, let go the helm, and she'll sit there pointing into the wind. Let off on the sheet and pull to windward on the tiller and she'll start moving. Sail flaps, pull it in, boat heels too much let her out a little. The boat know's how to sail, you just have too listen to her. A lot of tech sailors make it a lot more difficult than it really is.
