Thank you everyone for the great forums full of information. I've been using them to supplement the knowledge I'm getting out on the water.

All the best,

Bless you Sinner. Your salvation is at hand.

The Bay Area is a great place to learn to sail. If you can become competent on the Bay--and you can--you will do well most anywhere else.

Good Luck!

jimgo Welcome! You'll probably find that, except for the whole "being on the water" thing, it's an entirely different world.
