Re: How did you get your start in sailing?
I was 8 years old (almost 50 years ago) and had gone with my Dad to run weekend errands. There was a styrofoam Sea Snark for sale in someone's front yard. He bought it for $20, and on the way home stopped at a used bookstore and bought "The ABC's of Small Boat Sailing". The next weekend we were experimenting on the Chesapeake.
