I'm taking my boat out for my first sail tomorrow. I've never sailed (or even been on a sailboat before.) All I have is "Sailing For Dummies" & another sailing how-to book to rely on. What should I do/work on/practice tomorrow? Anything specific I should not try?

Thanks

You've never been out before? In another thread a couple of days ago I mentioned the winds. If you feel like it's too windy tomorrow don't go.

If you do go out wear a PFD and be sure to keep the pointy side up! :)

I've found two 'For Dummies' books to be at least OK. UML for Dummies was mentioned by one of my MIT professors as a reference in his office and I use it, too. I think Sailing for Dummies presents the basic seamanship stuff at least as well as most sailing books.

It's too bad the yellow and black cover screams "newby" regardless of subject...
