The good thing about a simulation is that nothing can go wrong and there are tutorials to get you started with the basics if you need. Feel free to practice until you get the feel for the wind and the position of your sails to make the boat move forward. The simulation can assist by pressing the "helping hand" button. and it can perform certain tasks for you, so you can focus on one aspect at a time.
Once you get the hang of it, there is a lot more to learn that even more experienced sailors don't always know. Things like why should a sail be open at the top? Or why should the curve of the sail be deeper when there is less wind? And how can you achieve that? Sailaway has tutorials for these things and can give suggestions along the way. By making sail trim optimization visible and explained, everyone can become an expert.
