Hey iza - welcome to SN. I don't what you'll find around here in terms of sailing buddies - but it's hopefully a lot better than CL!

Re: female sailor needs help learning to sail a bigger boat , sailor he

Since I live far away from Florida I can't help you directly, but maybe you can start by telling us what kind of boat do you have and where do you keep it. Just be a little patient because sailors here are a tough lot, but they mean well and really can help.
