You should head on down to the local Yacht Clubs with same offer (helping with maintenance in return for a ride and knowledge) I bet you will be pleasantly surprised by the response you get. Not that I wouldn't mind taking you out but simple logistics would suggest local resources are the better option. The CNY Boat show is beginning today in Syracuse. I'm going to try and go tonight, I'll keep an eye out for Rochester area sailing associations and report back.
Much appreciated Brad. I have started the YC thing, went to my first Genesee YC meeting last week, had a funny situation there, I wrote about it here:
80 footer versus a J/80 Newbie Story!
I'll be checking out others as well and of course anything you find I'm game! I'll keep in touch.
