Draco,

I had hoped someone in your area would reply, but no such luck (I''m on the east coast.) Try calling your local department of Parks and Recreation to see if they have or are aware of any youth sailing programs. Otherwise, you aren''t THAT far from the SF Bay, Richmond, CA and such. Perhaps sailors from that area are aware of some youth sailing programs you could get into.

Wish I could help more. Sailing needs the interest of the young! Good luck.

That would probably be Boneyard Boats. http://www.by-the-sea.com/boneyardboats/

They have a lot of older boats cheap or free.
