You did not indicate your location but many locations exist where it would be a very bad idea to get into a sail boat with out any knowledge at all.
DO Bring an able bodies friend, preferably someone with some sailing experience, even if your talking about a sunfish or dingy type of a boat if you're talking about any large body of water.
I 2nd the go to a club and sign on as crew. This is more important, even critical if your sailing on a real keel boat.
You didn't give a lot of info... what info you did give, gives many of us cold shivers with what could occur in some locations and with specific types of boats.
I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.... Jack London
