Hoping to learn to sail

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and hope to spend a lot of time here. My ultimate goal is to get my hands on a modest boat to take advantage of my location on the British Columbia coast. First thing's first...learning how to sail. I hope to take a course this summer if time and finances permit. Good thing I'm in no hurry, but at the same time I want to make this dream a reality. Cheers - Matt

Welcome aboard, Matt. If you can link up with a sailing club near you, you might be able to learn to sail for the cost of just a few beers.

Hey, I like that idea. There is a local dinghy sailing club that might be a good place to start, although I'm tempted to take a more intense 3 day weekender course on a 36'er.
