where to go from here?
Hi, I've always wanted to learn to sail, and my goal is to sail across the world one day. I grew up with my grandparents, and my grandfather was in the navy, when I was born he was already bedridden, so he told me his stories until he passed away a few years ago.
I have just taken some intro to sailing courses at my university sailing club (on the pirate and lasers), unfortunately, these are all they offer. I am about to go to the UK for my Masters, and probably be working on the East Coast of the US after that.
I loved sailing from the start, but am at a loss of what to do and what kind of courses I should take now. Should I continue to take lessons on dinghies, or should start taking classes on yachts?
Will it be enough for me to simply take all the ASA courses, and what should I do, given that I'm still in school and can't afford a boat?
Also, if anyone can divulge how they started, what they did, and how long it took them, it would be great!
