Re: Why is beam reach (or near to it) the fastest point of sail?

Thanks for responding. It seems that everyone else is intent on beating each other senseless with the points they score. Thanks also to those who pointed out that in my iPhone brainlessness, I...

If you are interested in looking deeper, then Magazine Articles (http://www.arvelgentry.com/magaz.htm) is a good source. Although it is 40 years old, it shows that most school text books are even...

Re: Beginner in Boston, MA

Community Boating costs about $150 per year membership and I don't think the lessons cost anything. Dinghy sailing (including small keelboats) so certainly a good starting point.

It is on the...

Re: Beginner in Boston, MA

I am not sure whether any of the sailing schools will offer lessons for work. More likely a boat owner prepared to sail with you in return for maintenance help.
