    Nevermind about what to wear for sailing lessons, I've got a different question now.

    Three months ago, I sustained a knee injury likely from Tae Kwon Do fighting. The thing is, it has been hurting on and off every now and then and I find it difficult to walk down stairs (been using elavators when possible) and kneel. I've seen a doctor about it and they told me it isn't broken or fracture but rather just a tendon injury. Would sailing (taking the White Sail I and II) actually worsen it or would it be ok?

    What is the exact injury? And do you mean ligaments rather than tendons?

    It's tendonitis in the left knee. The doctor told me there isn't much that can be done about the injury, other than resting and avoiding heavy exercise.

    Will be soon. Have a feeling it isn't going to be cheap either.
