Good luck, chief. Most people who are willing to to take a complete novice under their wing are looking for a hot chick to sail with. I'm pretty sure you don't qualify.

Maybe you should consider a sailing school. And once you know the pointy end from a hole in the ground, you could hang around the yacht clubs on Wednesday and Friday evenings, looking for a ride on a race boat. Then you'll be able to display your sparkling personality and other winning qualities to real people who actually own boats in the region you'd like to sail in.
