Been sailing 8 months. Currently sail a 26' in Tampa Bay and the Gulf every weekend and free day I get. How I got to where I am:
-Half day charter on lake superior 2 years ago- Skipper gave me an overview.
-Read "Sailing For Dummies" cover to cover. (really)
-Full day "Learn to Sail" charter (no certification): one on one basic instruction and conversation with the skipper.
**Important decision point: Classes and certs, or hands on.
-Found and purchased my boat. (Went for the sailable fixer-upper)
-Sail, fix, read, improve weekly.

I plan to take some courses before I move beyond short costal cruising.
