After learning to sail, I spent the next seven years crewing on racers - first as rail meat, then in every position on he boat including foredeck boss. Then I bought my own because I had the skill and confidence I needed. I still think you can learn more in a single race than any almost any two weeks on the water - IF you start out with the simple rule, "Shut up and pay attention." And you're right, I could still be sailing for free, but it gave me the irresistable need to have my own.
