sailing an RC yacht is easy. Takes 5 minutes to learn. Sailing an RC yacht "well" takes a few hours.... maybe a few months. When you think you know how to sail well, try racing. Then you discover you know nothing
One of the joys of this hobby is it is huge. Always something to learn. Even real yacht skippers find RC yachts a challenge.
I encourage people who, once they get the bug, to scratch build 1m boats. All up cost about $400. Benefit is you cannot buy a boat like that for the price. Simply not available.
But, baby steps first. I am 5 minutes drive from Lake Chipping Norton at Warwick Farm. Good safe place to learn as has a sheltered beach.
Feel free to PM for a sailing rendezvous.
