Re: Best Beginners sailing grounds?
If money/convenience were no object, I'd have to say anywhere the other guys are suggesting that affords year-round sailing in temperate waters with a good variety of wind conditions. Otherwise, they are spot on- hook up with a local club and learn to sail in a dinghy. We just had around 35 boats (J22's, FJ's and 420's) in a first-off regatta in Charleston and yesterday people were sailing in t-shirts and shorts.. pretty hard to beat! I would suggest it all depends on what you want and how much you can afford.
