CI...I, for one, applaud your efforts. Sometimes the critiquing on this board gets to be ridiculous.
And to those that (endlessly spout) "get more experience" and/ or "do your research", it seems to me that this is exactly what you are attempting to do.
Good luck and fair winds.
John

Isn't the best writing advice "write what you know"???

Learn to sail because you are driven to experience the water... and the movement and the physics of the sails.

I don't think it's gonna be a meaningful experience and work just right if there is another motive.

But that's just my opinion...I could be wrong...

and I'm not even Chuck but the owner of the vessel and wife....
Lynn...borrowing his membership cuz he doesn't use it!!!

presently in Australia

I remember...

Mostly I was spouting off, but meant it sincerely...the boat was on the hard and I was reading the forum here where Chuck joined to get some info he needed...he is really not such a participant...I was always the one to write. I thought it looked interesting to look around but forgot to check back until now.

Lynn...heading to the Whitsundays
