Hi Rakuflames, I really enjoyed 'Boldly Go Sailing'! Some invaluable tips especially the second anchor
& zinc. Very informative I have printed it out. Also I have already ordered 'Sailing for Dummies', another friend of mine suggested I buy it so I'm looking forward to it arriving. I used to live in a 'stink' boat, power boat
but actual sailing is all new to me. My partner and I are planning on purchasing
a sail boat soon with the intent of living on it in the Great Barrier Reef
( eventually). Of course being newbies we won't be venturing out much on our own without a competent skipper
with us, but hey the fun is in the learning
& better for us and everyone around us if we take baby steps. Thanks again!
