A learning sailboat?

Leon: Awesome link. I will study up and then follow Jaques´ advice. I don´t know anyone who sails, so I will try to get invited aboard. I will also get "dummies for Sailing" , if there is such a thing. I like that series for beginning to learn new tricks. Thank you gents.

OD18

Just keep in mind that it is a flat bottom boat, and the ride up front will be much rougher than towards the rear.
