I'd like to learn to Sail
I would like to learn to sail. I've always wanted to but never had the time. Now I have free time.
I am thinking of doing the Bareboat Chartering class (ASA 101, 103, 104) - 7 days with Blue Water Sailing School in Ft Lauderdale, FL. The review seems encouraging.
I have a couple questions and I'm hoping someone here can help.
1. Is June a good time to sail in Florida ? i.e. Is there enough wind in June ? (I know it's the beginning of the hurricane season)
2. I doubt I will buy a larger cruising boat in the next few years, but I'm hoping I can get something in the 15-20' range and be able to trailer it to lakes, rivers (Hudson River), bays, etc. Will the skills learned on a 43' sailboat prepare me to be able to handle a smaller boat ?
