Todd,

If you're in the Metro DC area proper (southern Maryland, northern VA or DC itself), look into one-design racing fleets that sail out of the Washington Sailing Marina. They do weeknight racing and you can usually join and crew relatively easily. If you're anywhere near Reagan airport it is something to look into. I know Lightning Fleet 50 is based out of there. There is a Flying Scot fleet as well. Both are multi-hand boats (3 and 2 respectively) and skippers are usually looking for crew. Great way to get sailing experience.

I'm working to become a member of the Severn Sailing Association in Annapolis. They do Tuesday night casual racing and so far all I can say is: give me more! Lots of boats, lots of options. I'm crewing on Snipe 2-man dinghies and looking to get into Lasers as a complement. Long-term, I want to get a Star keelboat.

For casual sailing, find a group for the area you wish to sail. My first several years sailing was done on other people's boats. I'll be happy to take you out on my C-27 in the Fall if you just want to get some Chesapeake Bay sailing under your belt.

Lots of ways to get involved.
