Learning to Sail in College

Hello everyone,

I'm currently a college student, who has had somewhat of a dream to go sailing and eventually buy a sailboat since early high school.

Basically, my question is how do you guys think I should get into it? I'm a good 6 hours from the coast, and have very limited resources (college debt, you know?).

My idea was to get a few guys together and go to a sailing school for a 3 day weekend or something. It's expensive for me, but I could get the money together if I really wanted to. After that, maybe I could charter a boat a few times a year until I graduate and have the money to really get into it.

I would like to start early, so do any of you have advice on how I could really get into this?
