Very n00b questions from a prospective sailor.

Hello all, ive been snooping around these forums and found it a really good forum environment compared to most other forums ive been on. So first off grats on that!

Personally ive always lived near rivers and love the water, but never had the money for a boat. I talked to some people on chat, and they helped me find boats in my price range.

Now, on to sailing and learning how to sail. I live in NJ about 15 min out of manhatten. So there are plenty of marinas and docks. But all the sailing lessons i find are upwards of 500$ is that because of my location or is that a normal cost for 2 day lessons?

Also,what do i need to expect to spend having my boat parked at a dock monthly?


Thanks for the help!!!
