WSC summer school
Funny to run into a WSC student on this board. I was there from 88-91, and still work with one of my roommates. I lived in Smt Cty for a while, then Denver, and now living near and sailing on the Chesapeake. Blue Mesa is a good sailing lake. Check the WSC summer school sched. as they used to offer a sailing class when I was there. Might be a good place to start, and cheap.
If you are not in Gunni next summer, the racing scene on Lake Dillon is pretty active, just find out what night/days they race, walk the docks, introduce yourself, and ask if they need crew. Be honest about your experience, ask lots of questions, do what they ask of you, buy the beer, most of them will be glad to have you around, and you'll get invited back.
Enjoy whats left of fall in Gunni, read "The Complete Sailor", as mentioned earlier, and ski hard this winter for those of us that still wish we had CB in our backyard....then go sailing when the snow melts.
