    What are the main differences between lake sailing and ocean sailing? This summer I was hoping to take my boat down to the coast and try it out in the ocean. Are there any things I should do differently? rigging etc. Anything different I should prepare for?

    I have absolute no experience, but I have heard that is essential that one know how to handle the waves, especially when to turn into them and when to turn away. I'd try to find a book or two that describes ocean sailing.
