How to move to the next level?
OK, so I've earned my ASA 101, I've been practicing tacking up and down the coast on day sails, and it's fun, I love it.
But I want to feel confident in my skills, like I can handle many different situations... In other words, I want to be a real sailor. I feel that when I just tack and gybe up and down the beach I'm beating a dead horse, practicing what I already know. OK, so maybe I'm not that great at it, but if I keep doing that forever, I'll just be a guy who can tack and gybe really good. Isn't there something else?
I've been told to manufacture a couple of buoys out of milk gallons and practice maneuvering around those, and I'll try that. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to practice some additional sailing skills?
