I am looking to get back into sailing on a hobby basis.
I am 25 and learned originally to sail a small boat (14'-18') when I was 13 or 14, but due to location I didn't have the opportunity to sail for many years. Now I live in LA area and am close enough to the water to get into it again.
I know that I need to re-certify and plan to take some classes (though I don't yet know where) but I am also looking at buying a small boat.
I know I like the Sloop rigging but I would be alright with Catboat rigging.
I need the boat small enough to fit on top of my jeep ('99 classic) and store inside an apartment.
I have to be able to carry it by myself.
I would greatly appreciate any recommendations on boats to look for and/or where to look.
I really want to get a small sloop (~16') and a trailer, but I need to wait until I have the money for storage or a slip. For now I just want to get my feet wet and get experience so when I am ready to buy a large boat I have the knowledge and a better idea of what I am purchasing.
Thank you in advance for any help or advice you can give,
