Re: asa school vs buying own 20-30ft and teach self?

Re: Flipped a sunfish twice today...what was I doing wrong.

I'll keep at it. I enjoy the cat because it's easy to sail and comfortable. But I think what I like about the sunfish is the quick handling.

Any tips on avoiding the boom? Can I sit in the...
