Intending to gain sailing experience

Greetings all,

My name is Brian Love, and I am here in order to obtain sailing experience, for the enrichment of my own life experience and also as research for a book that I'm writing. I currently own/operate a solar home construction business and organic farm in North Carolina, but have positioned myself to leave my "earthly" concerns behind for the sake of nautical adventure. I am young, brilliant, energetic, strong, unafraid of discomfort, and motivated to work in exchange for such an opportunity. Any advice or direction would be appreciated.

1) Find a good sailing school and develop some good habits before the bad ones set in.

2) Find a yacht club nearby where they are looking for crew for their races. Bring beer.
