Aledani is on a distinguished road
Hello from a complete newbie

Greetings all from a new user with no boat ,no sailing experience and whose maritime experience consists of an assortment of ferry trips....

So what does she do here I hear you ask yourself ?

Well,that mystery is quite easily solved: The man who has captured my heart ( hi honey!) intends to take me on a cruise to the island of Tristan da Cunha. Me thinks it might be nice if I learned a thing or two before this trip happens. We are talking quite some time in the future though. He needs to find the boat, I need to find my sealegs. He needs to expand his sailing experience and I need to acquire some....

Very cool. I would suggest looking for a sailing school and learning the basics first and then move on to a coastal cruising class for yourself. In my experience, you will learn a lot more faster from an instructor than your SO. Even if your SO is an outstanding sailor, the relationship dynamics can get in the way of the lesson. That will let you focus on the sailing and each other once you have your boat. Good luck and have fun, not just with the trip but the whole process.
