Sailboat tips for beginners

If you’re new to sailing, you need to understand that it takes a lot of practice before you’re able to harness the wind and use it to get around. As a beginner, you’ll want to make sure to incrementally build your skills. This means starting small in a variety of ways. Start off with a smaller boat that is easier to handle. This will help you get a feel for lines and sails without having to worry about too many of them. Try to master a boat with one sail first. Similarly, try to find an area with calm waters on which to learn. You’ll want it to be fairly big and as empty as possible so you have plenty of room to get your sea legs without having to worry about running into land or anybody else. No matter how strong a sailor you are, sometimes accidents happen. That means you need to know how to deal with them. Practice capsizing in your small boat so you can learn how to deal with the danger if it ever happens. Finally, remember that your education doesn’t end once you get off the water. Read about how to analyse weather patterns and conditions and get up to speed on the terminology associated with sailing.

What you need to know about sailboat storage and maintenance

Taking care of your sailboat is an important aspect of ownership if you want your investment and the good times to last. Storing your boat indoors whenever possible is your best bet, as such a location will protect your ship from sun rays that can damage sails and wind and rain that can harm your hull, especially if it’s made of wood. Speaking of the hull, perform inspections every few months to make sure no new cracks have formed. Even small fissures can turn into major headaches down the line. You also want to make sure to clean the hull whenever you take it out on the water. This will keep salt and other debris from building up and damaging your boat. Finally, whether storing your boat indoors or outdoors, try to make sure your vessel is away from anything that could fall on it and cause damage.  Keeping these tips in mind can help you get the most out of your sailing experience.
