Bare Bones Beginner

Hello, I'm brand new to the site and full of questions! I love being on the water but have a whole lot of obstacles ahead of me so I plan to ask a lot of questions and pick your brains for information. But until I find the right thread for posting my questions I'll just say hello.

Aloha and welcome aboard! Good to have you here.
I always recommend basic sailing lessons to get folks off on the right foot.
regards,

Hello and welcome to the forum. John makes a great suggestion; you can also consider joining a local yacht club and offering to crew. Regardless, you have come to right site for finding answers to and opinions regarding virtually any newbie questions.

Cheers!

Brad

Thank you all for the welcome! Since I joined this site I have been making some good progress. I'm right in the middle of an intro. sailing class right now and after that I'm heading off to New England to sail (and hopefully learn) some more I'm not really great at waiting, so I'm sort of jumping in with both feet!
