Hi Bill,

We love the questions so happy to answer anything :)

I think a logical next step is to take some sailing lessons. I don't have a sailboat at the moment and feel like I have lots to learn before I even start looking. Likely would meet some other sailors there too. I'm in a good area with plenty of sailors a few good schools and a pretty vibrant scene.
Welcome to the journey Bill.
You鈥檒l hear a range of recommendations about learning, be it classes or just finding someone to crew with on a regular basis. Both have merit. Do both of you can. Just do it, do anything , to get some time on a boat and on the water.
fire away on your questions.

Thanks for the advice. This is all new to me but of course I've already been scouring YouTube and boats for sale. Some advice I've already taken to heart is to be honest with yourself about what you will actually do. I'm thinking for a first boat of a coastal cruiser with enough accommodations for a couple.
