Welcome. It’s not really hard to learn. Find a club and someone will show you the basics in a day. Forget learning
all the nautical terms for a while...just learn to do it. Find a small dinghy
like a Bauer or Trinka ...lots of others if you ask here. You’ll probably flip it and that will be your most memorable and fun sail you will ever have ...you can keep the dinghy
for any big boat
you buy. Being a crew on a boat is also a way to learn.
My crew is composed of manatees who leave pizza boxes and empty beer
cans everywhere, fall asleep on watch and offgas unapologetically.
But I love them anyway.
You’ll find your way.
Happy trails to you.
