Sailing equipment is the biggest money-maker for any company, but some are willing to give you a discount if you’re willing to work with them.
That’s exactly what some people do when they’re talking to someone who doesn’t know a thing about sailing.
You could be giving someone the impression that you know a lot about sailing, and they’ll tell you to trust them on the boat and you won’t have to buy them a boat.
It’s the same thing if you tell them you’ve never sailed before.
You may not have much sailing experience, but that doesn’t mean you can’t tell them a lot.
This is what a good sailing instructor can do for you.
