First Lesson Today.
I want to buy a boat. I've only sailed once on someone else's boat fifteen years ago. Reading the forums here someone suggested, to another person in my same situation, that you might want to take lessons. I thought, "Hey, that's a good idea!"
Today I took my first lesson.
I had a lot of book learnin' and knew the stuff in my head. I could finally get that "seat of the pants" feel and put knowledge to good use. Even with my lack of experience we were able to move beyond the really basic stuff, i.e. What's a shroud? What's a jib? Name the parts of a sail... And actually sailed. A lot! Wonderful stuff!
These boards a great resource and I really appreciate the willingness of those with experience to share.
Thanks so much to everyone.
