It’s a lot more difficult than you’d expect. Be patient. Don’t give up after the first time. Sailing is extremely complex. You will be overwhelmed. Even the most experienced sailors don’t completely understand every boat, every environment, and wind condition. There are thousands of factors that come into play while sailing. And if you don’t know what a word means or don’t understand something. Ask. No one will judge you. It will only benefit you in the long run.
