Re: I think I may do some racing!!!
Man this thread has a lot of bad advice in it.
Here's what I'd recommend:
1) Go down to the after-party of the race you want to join. Talk to people from different yacht clubs, tell them you want to race, the guys you click with the most, join their club
2) Follow their advice
A good yacht club will have good people that will help you get started. They will tell you what you need to do, teach you the rules, how to make your boat faster, etc, etc.
Yeah yacht clubs cost money to belong to, but if you find the right club, you'll get a lot of bang for your buck.
