Re: ASA 101 course or challenge?
All training is great.
I personally believe there is no better way to learn how to sail than to crew on a racing boat. Find a local yacht club, volunteer to crew on a boat about the same size as yours. You'll learn more faster and in more circumstances than you would on your own.( and when things break it's not your boat.) It's been said that you will tack more times in one race than you would day sailing in a year !
Also you learn how to manage stress, fatigue, emergencies, and screwups in all kinds of conditions. The best part is; you'll make a bunch of friends who you'll enjoy sailing with for the rest of your life and have many stories to tell.
Arrrg!! matey, it brings tears too me one good eye !
Have fun !!!!!!
