Sailingdog - "boat drudge" - not familiar with the term but if it's like a "gopher" or some one you flog\beat or the lowest man on the totem pole, then YES - why would someone who does not know me take a newbie out. I offer the incentive of being the bitch - I'll cook\clean, I'll even buy the beer - just show me the "ropes" in between - $50 spent on beer is a lot less than $250 for a club trip. I've gone sailing that one weekend, plus constantly read so not a total newb, but ....

Freesail99 - where are you? Jersey?

Jotun - where are you? And though I'm a newb, basic sailing seems pretty simple - I imagine things like celestial nav, lnav for long cruises, sailing in rough conditions or with a spinnaker, etc are things that take time - but it seems simple - I think that I coulds do basic sailing by myself in less than 6 months - I'll go out with you - you're probably better than you think.
