Re: Want to learn to sail in Progreso Mexico

I'd suggest you pick up a copy of Royce's Sailing Illustrated and buy a small boat (under 16 feet) and go sail it.
Sailing ain't rocket science. It's about 60% common sense, 30% experience 5% education and 5% input from other sources. It's mostly about having fun and for some, the most fun many of us have had sailing was learning by doing.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
