Re: Reassurance and your thoughts?

My wife and I took a 2-day course and then realized that we needed a boat to practice on or our lessons would rapidly fade. We bought a 28-ft boat and learned the rest on the job and from books. My wife likes course learning, so she took another 2-day course but found it of little value as she only got a little time at the helm. I prefer reading books and sites like this and then applying what I think I've learned. One thing we both benefitted from was having an experienced sailor go out with us on our boat a couple of times.
