Re: Complete and total 'newbie'...
I don't envy you discovering this obsession while being on active duty. Hell, I was active duty NAVY and still couldn't get on the water recreationally. "The cobbler's sons have no shoes..." The only time I could get on the water was when we were "haze gray and underway."
It wasn't until civilian life that I had the disposable time to invest in sailing...which is tragic.
Anyway, make the most of it that you can, and best of luck. Not sure if you're a 20 year man or not, but you'll have more play time on the water when you're a civilian. If you really like sailing, don't let go of it.
