north ga. sailors?

hey, does anyone out there live in north ga. want to teach a couple of new jacks to sail?
my wife and i have limited experience, well.... practically no experience sailing and we want to learn before we try it ourselves.
So if anyone is eager to teach, let me know.

thanks,
jason

Used to be an outfit called the Barefoot Sailing Club out of Atlanta that had a lot of members sailing on lake Lanier. Don't know if they still exist.

They're still around, and I believe they welcome anyone who wants to sail. In other words, you don't need a boat to join. My dad and I used to race a 420 in the Barefoot Sailing Club, back in the early 1970's. That sure seems like a long time ago.....

howdy, jasonandsarah. welcome to sailnet. there are several on lanier who offer sailing instruction. me? i'm still a little green myself as far as sailing goes, but i'm having a blast!........

y'all ever been on a sailboat before? i'm tellin' ya, y'all are fixin' to get into something that will be a life changin' experience.......

i have never been involved in any other activity that gives me more of a rush. the feeling of yer boat pulling into the wind, trimming out to get the maximum from yer sails is a totally different animal than powerboating. sailing is a constant game of strategy where everything is in your control except the wind. i hope you will enjoy this wonderful pastime......

good luck,
scott

Everybody wants to gain somthing

"Quick hint" You dont have to purchase enything, sell anything join anything. Simply become involved in the hobby or sport by talking to folks at the dock at work or any other places you hang out. I bet you will find some friends that would just love to teach you and your wife how to sail. cause heres the thing. it much easer to handle a boat of any size with 2 to 4 people. and sometime sailers need more friends to learn to sail for 2 reasons. well first off, there a frindly lot, and secondly they could always use some help with a great day on the water. So poke around over this sommer ask your friends current if they are sailers or if they have other sailer friends. Thats how we learned. save your money. Show up on any race day ready to crew and someone will always need crew. Check out the race bullinton boards for Lainer and allatoona you will have no problem. If you realy want to "PAY" some one well Lord Nelson Charters is the Best place on Lake Lainer.
Captian Ricki Lee has years of sailing and years of teaching.
Good luck and cheers.

North Georgia

I live in North East Georgia. I have a Com-Pac 23. I'm no instructor, but I am always looking for somebody to sail with. My wife and I sail often on Lake Richard B Russell.
