Re: Where to start?

Welcome to Sailnet, Mike!

I agree about finding a local club (more often way less expensive than yacht club membership). Until you turn 18 you'll probably have to have a parent or guardian sign the club applications, too. I also don't know about signing on as crew as a minor. I'm not sure how that usually works.

If you plan to attend college, find one with a sailing program. They will more than likely take novices.
