Re: Experience vs Courses

Get time on the water wherever you can, but make sure it is with someone that knows how to sail by the book (proper protocols and techniques). If that means paying for a class then do it. If you don't know whether you have enough experience, then you don't. First learn the correct way, then you can do it your way.

As Gandhi said, 'It is important to learn the rules well, so that one knows how to break them properly."
