I am brand new to sailing and have yet to get onto the water. I've read a few historical books about sailors and have recently started reading practical guides ([I]Sailing For Dummies[I] and [I]Learning to Sail: The Annapolis Sailing School Guide for All Ages[I]). I've had a pretty intense interest in sailing for some time and after about 2 years of looking, bought a boat this past weekend.
It's a used, Challenger 15'. I believe it's a 1972, manufactured by the Leon Irish Co. I just got it home this weekend and have been looking very heavily at getting rigged up and try my hand at some yard-sailing if you will, but I don't know where to start with the rigging. I have a very basic knowledge of what should go where, but was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for my specific boat. I've looked on the internet for guides or manuals for the Challenger, but have come up empty. I would appreciate any assistance anyone could render.
I'm sure I'll be on this forum a lot, soaking up information as I have a lot to learn. Thanks to everyone in advance!
