General Sailing Questions

Catch all for sailing questions.


I just ran across a new (to me at least) black box. Might be a gotta have device .... its called "The Sailing GPS". Tracks current position, destination position and wind direction to calculate the best course to destination.

Looks interesting on the web.

Fine sailing weather last night,

How do i learn how to sail?

Well, to be honest, the way I did it was to crew for someone.  Almost all the boats here in Juneau need crew for our races, and most skippers would be happy to take along a new person.  That is especially true if the skipper can rely on the person to consistent in when they can go sailing.


Another great way in Juneau to learn to sail is with the 420's of the Juneau Youth Sailing program
