Retired and need to know the ropes (or lines??) :)

My husband and I are newly retired and are thinking we'd like to start sailing. He's had several classes and I've had none. We are going on a day sailing excursion this weekend to see how I do with being on a sailboat. Have been on motor boats on a rocky ocean and am ok above board, but don't know about being below. I'm a little nervous about this, because am not sure if my age permits me to do some of the things that are necessary for the whole experience. Any tips for a 63/yr old woman who's very green at this sort of thing? I value your feedback.

I am looking forward to learning and meeting people in the sailing world. We've already met some incredible people on our land travels when we visited marinas, and we had such nice visits with all of them.

We are located in Baton Rouge at the moment, but are free to go whenever and wherever the wind blows us.

Happy sails to you...
