Introduction to Sailing by DBYC (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
This document explains all aspects of sailing for apostolate beginners. It includes everything from the names of things, to what makes boats go forward. Reading this before going sailing would be a good step towards learning to sail.
What ever sport or activity you do, the chances are that there is some special jargon for describing things. Sailing is no different and it has it's fair share. Part of learning to sailing is just getting to know the jargon so that you can at least talk to talk (or know what people are talking about) even if you are learning to walk. This glossary of jargon describes most things and is a good place to start.
The Sydney area offers a diverse range of water for sailing. If you own your own boat then having the flexibility to chose where you sail from is a great think. Depending on the craft you sail and your level of experience, there will be different areas which will be most suitable or not. For details on this see the new wiki page for sailors and general water enthusiasts.
