Don't even know where to start

In short: 54-y-o woman, currently in Ohio, soon to be moving to Saipan.

I want to get back into sailing, but as a Navy vet, most of my bluewater time has been haze grey and underweigh.

The prolem is that I can't find any info at all about the sailing situation on Saipan. Once there, I'd like a boat that I could take down to Guam maybe a couple of times a month, or to the other islands. Single-handed.

Should I wait until I get there and see what's available?
If I find a good boat in Hawaii, what would be the best way to get it to Saipan? What other questions should I be asking?

As an aside, I'm left-handed, which is hell in learning rigging and basic marlinspike seamanship. Anyone else? Any advice?

Thanks--I'm so glad I found this site!
