Re: New sailboat owner!

I don't know about California, but most states require you take a boating safety class. Even if it's not required, I strongly suggest taking one and follow up with a sailing and seamanship class. Check with both the Coast Guard Aux and the US Power Squadron for available classes.
For sure, you need someone to show you the ropes of boating/sailing. Do you have any boating savvy friends to help?
Where are you keeping the boat? trailer, mooring, marina?
