Look what I found today. A sailing course for total n00bs!
This pretty short and entertaining video is perfect if you’re a pure SL sailor without any prior RL sailing experience. I never knew it was possible to learn so much in such a short time span. And that without any stress. But watch the vid and decide for yourself if it’s helpful for you or not. And hey, even if you don’t intend to ever hit the real wet water with a real floating vessel, this little video might help you to understand many things in SL sailing as well and get rid of some misconceptions. Because the physics and rules of sailing are the same.
While I don’t agree with everything the funny dutchman is teaching us, his way is at least nice and slow and the most safest. And he’s mainly talking about a singlehanded sailing beginner, so his method might be the only feasible way.
Have fun and enjoy learning how to sail.
