New to sailing. Practicing today!

I'm brand new to the forum and sailing as well. Took a sailing course with a great instructor and bought a 27' boat as a starter. We are in Key West this week and will rent a small Hobie to have fun/practice on today. Looking forward to it,

Have fun! And if you bought a 27 foot monohull, then don't worry, it *will* tack quicker than that Hobie...:-)
