New to sailing not adventure

I am an avid outdoor and adventure seeker. I have driven offroad from Central America to the actic ocean. Spent all my vacations of the last 25 years camping. I have owned power boats but never a sailboat. Now I want to get into sailing!

I am looking to the experienced sailors here for some advice. I have a place in Mexico on the sea of Cortez and would like to 1st learn to sail and then buy a boat an sail the baja penensula. I will be looking for a boat that is good to learn on and can be trailered.

Thanks!

Welcome aboard check out the Catalina 25 for a nice trailerable boat. I learned on a Ranger 23 but they are not as easy to trailer as the Catalina.
Cheers, and have fun.

Thank you! I will be looking all over this forum to see what I can learn and I am going to a nearby lake where they have sailing schools and a lot of people sail. I will do some learning by doing and putting myself around it. Got to start somewhere.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I'd recommend at least a basic sailing course before purchasing. It'll give you a bit of perspective on what you might want to own later on.
