Sailing newcomer with NO experience at all

Hi All,

Just joined to start some research into cruising.

Please accept my apologies for all the stupid questions I will no doubt ask as I try to get to grips with the terminology and try to increase my knowledge!

Mark

Ah just kidding. We've ALL had a lot dumber questions than you can come up with... like how come when I pull the tiller this way the boat goes the other way?
