Sail vs. Power
Denr is absolutely correct - you must want to sail otherwise you are looking for transportation in which case you will probably be happier with a power boat. Typically sailors will be happy to spend the day on the water without actually going anywhere and most often returning to their home port. When the opportunity to cruise from location to location presents itself this is a plus but again is not an essential requirement for most sailors. I suggest you hitch a few rides with some sailors -you must enjoy the journey otherwise sail is not for you.
