Maybe someone mentioned this, I didn't read all posts carefully. A windsurfing board will teach you the affect of center of lift on the center of lateral resistance. It is all you have to turn one and that will be a great lesson for both sail trim on a boat, as well as potentially having to make shore with a broken rudder.
I learned to windsurf from a guy on a beach in Aruba. After a few passes in a 20kt offshore breeze, he took off and left us alone. We just got further and further from shore. Eventually made it back. Couldn't decide if that was the best or worst way to learn.........
