Newbie in need of guidance

Hello I have NO interest in sailing but my beloved, largely computer-illiterate, 61-year old sister has. She's been thru cancer and divorce such that finally, finally is she going to try to fulfill a long-held dream: to sail. While she is not without experience, yet rather than try for her own small boat (the risks attendant to which scare me, frankly,) she would love to crew or tag along for a fee or join with a few other women somehow. Her real passion is Mother Nature, a keen desire quiet time at anchor in inlets and such.

Can anyone provide us direction? We live in the Pacific Northwest but I am certain Jolynn would be up for adventure anywhere. Is there a forum out there for this kind of thing perhaps?

Thank you much.
