I have just purchased a 27' Watkins sailboat, and am learning
to sail her, up in the cold waters of Lake Winnipeg Canada
. I have taken the boat
out about a dozen times and have not sunk her yet, although I have not had the boat
in any winds greater than about 12 - 15 knots. I hope to be able to learn more about sailing from the many experienced yachtsmen on the site.
