hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
ppop, I'd suggest taking a basic sailing course (typically 3 days split into two weekends) to learn how the mechanics of it work and get comfortable with it. Followed by a "bareboat" course, which typically is a week aboard a larger boat, living on it and sailing it and learning boat systems.

No, that's not the cheapest way to go but it gives you a solid foundation and a chance to make sure the surprises won't be expensive ones. And it can even be a fun vacation.

Hellosailor I've had a basic sailor course. Also I joined the Puget sound sailing group and have been out on a few sails with them. I would like to do more but they are usually. Weekends which I work.
