Re: New to Sailing and SailNet

Welcome to Sailnet, Moose, and War Eagle.

I agree with Bill and Caleb....see if you can find a local club to join or find a marina where you can make some friends and crew for them.

Another suggestion is to brush up on some fundamentals and then rent more beach cats.....they're a blast to sail and because they are so responsive are a great way to learn how sail trim affects performance.

A book like this might be helpful:

And if you're ever down in the Keys let me know and we'll go for a sail.
