Re: Newbie looking for experience and knowledge

Definitely investigate which clubs organize the local racing scene and go crewing on a race boat if you really want to learn to sail! Crew that are eager and willing to help out with the more mundane chores of keeping a boat in racing trim are always welcome. You will have the best luck starting out with the slower racer/cruiser classes since they are usually the ones that are short of crew. Once you get some knowledge under your belt you can try to get a ride on one of the speedsters.
