Welcome to SailNet. Your best bet is to check your local CraigsList, any local sailing magazines, and or call around to local sail clubs that also offer sailing classes. They may have older boats they no longer use for whatever reason.

That's a shot in the dark. My club usually has one or two for sale that they only seem to advertise in the club newsletter.

Re: New to Sailnet and Sailing in Florida

Craig's list is a good place to look as well

Welcome Aboard! Craig's list would be first choice. Good Luck!

Re: New to Sailnet and Sailing in Florida

Try this link, it is a natinwide search of craigslist and ebay that you can set the type of boat you're looking for and how far from you you'd like to search.

SearchTempest: Search all of Craigslist nationwide & more
