A faint heart never won a fair maiden.
Yes, cast off in a boat you own that is properly insured, and has proper safety & ground equipment. Ask forgiveness of other sailors against whom you might transgress. We will teach you and love you...and you will learn in a truly serious fashion.
Emily & I were taught by Steve at City Island when he was first starting. He gave Emily all she needed except confidence. Confidence comes from driiitng backwards out of a slip and discovering that life is really about learning how to recover from screw-ups... and being able to laugh about it afterwards with friends you respect and now respect your honesty.
