Re: Complete Newbie...No Idea What I'm Doing...

Jim, I had tried to set up a PA NJ DE area recreational sailors group but it didn't seem to fly well. then I got the idea to have a "Delaware River Recreational Sailors" group. Take 5 and Uldah were keen on the idea too but it just seems like land based gatherings are the only way to have such a group. Distance.. being the problem mostly.

Well, still certainly good to know you folks are just down the 'pike!

A regional recreational sailors group would be kind of neat actually. Put me down as interested!

Don't know about power squadron, but for sailing what you want is instruction thru ASA or US Sailing.

Something I've always felt is true;

"Just because someone is very good at something they do, and you want to learn it. It doesn't mean, that person can teach it to you"

imho Sailors are terrible teachers.
