Re: fresh meat!

Fresh meat indeed!
Welcome to Sailnut. There are quite a few members here who sail in your immediate area. Some of them are racers. Maybe if you can afford a reasonable beer/ale like Sierra Nevada someone might want you as crew. Of course, some racers are also shouters so just try to avoid that segment of skippers.
Sounds to me like if you just keep at what you are doing you will find some like minded sailors. I recommend getting aboard as many different kinds of boats before you set out to buy your own.
You might also want to check out the wooden boat forum if you are into 'woodies' that is.
