With love,From India!!

Hello friends
About 15 hours back i did not even realize there was this big a sailing world out there!!I am a 23 year old guy from India.
I was casually looking for some sailing information and stumbled upon this forum-And i have been HOOKED...for more than 10 hours i have been reading,understanding,soaking it in..

The passion of members of this forum for sailing has inspired me to take up sailing as a pursuit! Disregarding the fact that my country has NO sailing school,no infrastructure,i have Decided to travel to take up classes!!

I intend to soak up as much of knowledge i can from the posts on this forum..
Can i ask for some assisstance as to where would i find the best resources on sailing?
Like for example,an sailing dedicated magazine?
Or any other website or even books...

I intend to get married next year and be competent enough to take my partner on a bareboat journey aboard a chartered yacht!!

If i say ask you to have a look at my first thread asking some questions important to me and consider answering them if you find them worthy enough to warrant a reply!!
Heres a link to post-

First time ever from India-certification and sailing school advice!!


Thank you for your time and thank you for making me a part of this family!

Shashwat

+1 on Zinio. I was running out of space in my garage for past issues of sailing magazines. Now all I have to do is buy more external storage for my laptop.

eBooks (or iBooks if you prefer). There are many good books on sailing and cruising. Use a laptop or tablet because the next step is getting all of those wonderful navigation programs, charts, weather radars, compass, gps and such. The journey has just begun. Good luck and welcome aboard.
