LittleMissMagic Something tells me that drylander doesn't get much dryland?

flagolfsailguy I'd stop by the Bayview Yacht Club and try to hire a couple of young, experienced racers. Youl learn more about trim, speed etc. in a few days than any course.

Now it's off to Amazon to buy a copy of Sailing Fundamentals to prepare in advance (I've already read it), and we should be good to go!

My book came for free from the instructor. Do not rush to give your money to Amazon.

Don't be a sissy! My 10 years of married life prove you wrong. You'll never get respect until you prove and insist your point to the Admiral.

We considered that. Considering I have past crewing experience, my wife has past sailing experience, we'll be taking that class, the PO has offered to accompany us for the first couple hours, the route is pretty straight-forward and the miracle of modern electronics, we've decided to give it a go.

I can understand that. If we didn't have the above going for us, we'd likely do the same.

I'm curious: What general route did you have to take and how long was the trip?

Thanks for the suggestion.

So noted. Thanks!

As for Sailing Fundamentals: The plan is, once we get the boat, we'll start out by doing each of the "at sea" exercises with our own boat. Just the two of us. That should keep us busy for a while .
