Re: Best Beginners sailing grounds?
I don't think I would suggest the Keys for beginner sailing. Especially if you are singlehanding. I just went on a singlehanding down there this past year and it was fun but it was pretty darn challenging.
-Two tides a day so you swing on your anchor a good bit at night
-Good bit of places to run aground
-Not a good place to be in hurricane season (especially if your a few days from your vehicle)
-It a little intimidating overall
Now if I hadn't been alone I think it would have been alot more laid back and I wouldn't have been so stressed.
Also, it depends on what size boat your on to. I was on my Montgomery 17.
Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
