Sailing is highly confusing for the beginner. Port and Starboard (left and right), all those different knots and technical jargon it can seem rather daunting. But the sheer enjoyment of it is worth the hassle. Once you're out skimming over waves, spray in your face, waving away to other folks on the water there's no other feeling like it. And with day trips and lessons theres no better way to spend a day than messing about in boats as a famous rat once said.
