New to Sailing

I am very interested in sailing and would like to take it up as a potential life-long hobby. Any suggestions on where to begin?

Re: New to sailing

Look for a local sailing or yacht club and let the locals know they have a volinteer to help and wanting to learn.

Re: New to sailing

Tell us more about yourself, are you inland or coastal, where do you live. Whats your budget, I've always wanted a sailing canoe with an outrigger and that would be great for a small lake, the possibilities are near limitless.

Welcome!

Re: New to sailing

I am in the same 'boat' in the panhandle. I'm 26 and thankfully have a good job to help pay for hobbies (-cough-fishing-cough-)..unfortunately that same job keeps me out of town over 40% of the year. I am married, originally from Michigan, and now live 1 mile from the water

I am considering signing my wife and I up for a few ASA courses. Although they are a bit pricey. I do have a friend who sails and has offered to take me out as well, thankfully!
