Hi everyone, up until 2 weeks ago, I had never stepped foot onto a sail boat. Today, I am a new US Sailing certified sailor. However, the credentials doesn't mean much to me as I am not completely confident on my skills. Yes, I know the basics but there's so much more to learn on this way of life than a 24 hours course can cover. To you all old salts, what advice do you give to a newbie like me. What is the best way to build the skills and confidence to one day, own my own boat and take weekend trips along the coast. I plan on joinning a boat club next spring where I can take Rhodes 19 and Sonars out but I don't want to be limited to a confined space within the harbor where there's so much ocean outside the confined limits.
Anyway, great posts on here and any advice would be very much appreciated.
