This is true, as I have been dreaming of sailing for a couple of years but short on cash. A couple of sailors on this web site gave me the idea to join or contact a sailing club about crewing in races. Therefore, I started emailing different sailing clubs asking them if they knew anyone that needed a newbie crew sailor. One week later, a boat owner who needed 1 more crewmember to sail in a 2-day regatta emailed me. The 1st day out, there were 15-17 kn winds sailing on a Melges 24, it was awesome to say the least and I am hooked. Now, I hook up with them every Wednesday evening. These guys are great and they are more then willing to teach since we all have to start some how and some way. I am learning every time I go out. It is AWESOME.... Mainly, not because it's free but because I am finally sailing instead of just dreaming about it.... As long as you are willing to labor they are willing to teach..
