Welcome to SN, triathjohn.
Are there any community or coop type boat clubs in your area? It's worth a quick internet search.
If you're near any size city with a waterfront, there is usually a community boat club. The club fees aren't too much, everyone becomes part owner in the club's boats with membership and there are usually adult sailing lessons available.
These tend to be small, friendly, social clubs with lots of BBQs and informal get togethers. If you really want your wife to learn to love sailing, this would be a good way to do it.
If she meets other women that love sailing, you will find she gets converted pretty quick.
