You should just start one. A couple of guys that I sail with here in the Kansas City area (you can't get much more landlocked than KC) started a sailing team when they were in college. They never competed in a single race, but they got several write ups in the school paper, got a page in the year book, and got to tell everyone that they were college athletes. How cool is that?

Might be worth looking into.

Did anyone hook you up yet?

I'm heading to Lake Charles in a few weeks. If you're interested, I can take you on a couple of laps around the lake to show you the basics.

In other words, a group lesson wherein you select the group.

If anyone who comes upon this is interested, I have at least one other person besides myself who would be interested in the $250 option. If we can get a crew of 4 to meet on a schedule, we'd be able to learn and work together, which is appealing to me opposed to potentially sailing with a group of strangers each class.

Anyone interested?
That's a very interesting idea. Seems plausible.

I second the Wednesday races. After the races everyone (who wants to) meets at one of the clubs bars to shoot the **** and eat and drink. Might be a good place to drop into if you can make the trip from Lafayette.
Havent tried any of these, just happened to notice them while surfing over the years
