Cres, I had the similar issue few years ago, how to learn sailing, racing
, etc. I joined Point - Claire Yacht Club and had I lot of fun meeting very nice people, racing
as a crew member
, before I bought my first boat - Hunter
23. It was my first experience as a sail boat owner and helps me a lot to understand what I really want from sailing and which way to go. I have left the Club this spring for Lake Champlain cruising on my Bayfield 29 and would be glad to share my cruising time and experience as I'm single-handed most of the time.
