Re: First time on the water today, I could use some advice!

They called the Mainsail the MAIN sail because its the MAIN sail.

The jib is just the thing to make sailmakers more money.

Go out again and just use the mainsail. Then have a go with the jib too, but always with the main up first

If you got proficent with the jib today you may be able to start next time with both sails, but I would just go the Main.

Have fun. It does get easier. Its very easy drunk.

She is a little mad at me right now!
Why do men go out with women? If we were out on the boat with all our mates and the same things happened we would just laugh and go to a bar and watch football.
