Complete Newby - Bostonian

Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a second to introduce myself. I am 24 years old, from Boston and completely new to sailing. My girlfriend and her family have a Laser ZUMA and I have been zipping around her lake for the last month or so. I grew up so close to the Atlantic and yet it took me this long to get into a boat. I only hope that I can learn from all the knowledgeable members here and become more comfortable on the water.

From what my girlfriend and her father have told me, I am kind of a natural in her small boat. I am able to control the boat well, keel a small bit, and tack on a lake where the wind predominetely blows in one direction only.
