Hey dabnis. Your lesson suggestion is well met. I am in the mindset at this point that if it gets hairy, I am just gonna drop sail a little, a lot, or all the way, turn the motor on, which will probably already be on, and head back to the last marina I passed. If its benicia,richmond, or even if its only half an hour straight back to where I started at oyster point ,,, no big deal really,, REALLY! If I turned cause of weather, I just wait it out. If I turned cause I realize, well, its just a little too out of my comfort zone, then I pay for a slip till I am done with some lessons. And as far as my " Jeez I hope I dont find out this isn't for me" it was misleading and I'm sorry.
Well, what I really should have said was, " I hope I am capable of being a good seaman. " Sailing appears to be a hobby for some, a lifestyle to others, and possibly an issue of survival to everyone. However, I LITERALLY KNOW I will enjoy it and it is for me. I hope to cruise offshore someday and make ocean passages to other countries and continents. I feel the more I learn, the more I need to know, and "I don't want to find out someday" I am not capable of things like navigating an entire ocean with paper, pencil, parallel rulers, and a compass, because I don't have the aptitude. Honestly.
