so far my learning curve has been anything but smooth:
summer camp Laser many moons ago. got me very interested.
windsurfer sailing in Spain one summer when I was 18, also some time on other people's boats that summer.
then some days drinking and cranking winches in San Diego
a few days on a Cat in Costa Rica, big storm, you learn a LOT in a storm. FAST.
Many days on various other sailboats in Costa Rica
a *perfect* sailing day on the SF Bay with my brother, who was taking formal coursework at the time, is a genius, and was very patient with my questions
a full week in the BVI, also with my brother, on a 42' cat. More questions, a few hours/day of sailing.
More time in Costa Rica on various craft.
I'm thinking that it is probably time to take a formal class now, but a little bit concerned as I suspect that an "intro" course will bore me to tears. But not sure if I can enroll in an Intermediate course without some sort of certification.
Guess I'll have to go talk to some schools.
