Re: Beginning Sailor
Yes, welcome aboard. Lots to learn both here and on the water. You're already on the right track so when it comes time to get your own boat you'll have some good ideas about what you want.
Sailing clubs seem to be getting more popular.. makes sense in a lot of ways, but there's nothing like getting up one nice morning and just 'deciding to go for a sail'... tough to do without your own boat.
