Re: How did you get your start in sailing?
Asked my wife what she would like for Christmas. She said sailing lessons might be fun. So I signed both of us up for the SCUM (Sailing Club University Wisconsin Milwuakee), trained on Solings, Catalina 25 and Yngling (sp, boat not the beer). Good training, nice people. The next winter we bought our first boat and continue to learn through association with the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center.
