Sailing Expedition?

So here''s my story... I''m 25 and love the outdoors. I graduated college 3 years ago and took off for Europe for 2 months 2 days after I graduated. I got a job doing Research trying to figure out what I want to do w/my life. I am now beginning Pharmacy School this fall and want to take another adventure before I begin. I am finished with my job in June and begin school in Early September. I have always wanted to sail/learn to sail something along those lines. I''m debating on what to do. I also am entertaining the idea of taking an expedition to Alaska or someother remote area, but sailing would be my top choice.
IDEALLY, I would love to spend a 3 weeks or more on the water, learning to sail while enjoying all that sailing and the open water has to offer. I am currently searching for companies that offer this, but am coming up short. I''d even join an individual/s, or whatever else is out there.
I am seeking any advice, information, or anything related to this topic that anyone has!

Thanks
Tom

Google. It works.

www.findacrew.net

Or check out the boats in the Maine Windjammer fleet, they will probably be willing to take on SERIOUS applicants for crew positions. Be prepared to do a lot of food prep and housekeeping work if you are a greenhorn.
