Re: Sail Training


It's good to hear from someone in the sail training business. The boats I learned sailing on are, I'm certain, long gone. They were large wooden gaff rigged sloops on Lake Chiemsee in Germany in the early '70s.

I taught sailing on production fiberglass sloops so never experienced what you have.

kind regards,
