JadedDolphin is on a distinguished road
Learning to Sail

I too am new to sailing and did alot of research before buying a Seafarer22. One great thing I did was locate the United States Power Squadron you can google them in your area or contact the coast guard they know all about them as most squadron members are former coast guard. Next check out the courses they offer, I took a six week charting course, one night a week from a great teacher and sailor and the cost was $21 for everything including the book and teach, they offer lots of courses and the classes are filled with new sailors like you. Also I now hang out at the marina bar in Alexandria, Va., and there are lots of guys looking for crew members because they have big sailboats.
