Club in Marina Del Rey

Does anyone recommend a sailing club in Marina Del Rey, CA? I'm new to sailing, inexperienced, but I'd like to join a club to get some experience daysailing in the area.

If you know of a good place in Redondo or other nearby port, please let me know too. I'm looking for an affordable club, the boats don't have to be beautiful or new, just as long as they float.

I'm checking out Fairwinds this Saturday. Does anyone have any comments on them? I'll write a post with my impressions next week.

I know it's a drive, but go to Orange Coast College Sailing center in Newport. One of the best and cheapest sailing schools in the country. They've got everything from dinghies to a 65' monster that goes offshore every summer. It's been 20 years, but when I first started sailing, I drove an hour there every weekend and took every class they had, passed all the ASA tests with flying colors without taking their much more expensive courses and have raced and chartered all over the world. Start with solid basics, you'll get that in small boats, when you are good sailor, then you can learn cruising, anchoring, navigation, etc.
