What's the best way to get started?
First post. I've always dreamed about buying a boat and sailing all over the world. Recently, I have decided to take the first step: buy one and learn to sail. I have a long way to go, but I'm going to start now. I have owned small motor boats in the past, so I know a thing or two about boating. I have been out on sailboats before, but I know nothing about sailing. Before I buy a boat and jump right into this thing, I figure I should learn how to do it and get some experience on different boats.
So....what is the best way to get my feet wet? I have looked into getting certifications, but it looks expensive! It would be ideal if I could connect with someone who needs an extra hand on the weekends, or something like that. Are there any websites where people post and link up like this? I live in San Diego, and there are tons of sailboats around. I figure there should be some type of a situation like this available.
Thanks everyone. All comments and help is much appreciated.
