learning to sail in virginia
I'm learning also... I'm in South Hill, VA - we call this area "Southside VA".
I've been to annapolis a few times, but I mostly go to Kerr Lake which is on the NC/VA border. Steele Creek Marina which is on the NC side is home to over 400 sailboats of all types.
I purchased a J/24 to learn on - what was I thinking? (c; They're inexpensive, but they have as many controls as the big A-cup boats - so, I've been working on simplifying it a bit, as well as learning to rig and launch it.
You might see how far you are from either Kerr Lake or Annapolis and start by showing up at one place or the other.
