Quite a few people have been encouraging the OP to do just that for the past few weeks. If he has, he hasn't reported back how he enjoyed it (or not). Until he actually gets on a sailboat and starts...

Re: Which ones have ship wheel/helm and no tiller?

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Where's Mr. Bubs' dead horse when we need it?
