Have been living in east Tennessee all my life. I want to get out of here and learn to sail. Does anyone know of a way that I could hang out and get to know people, perhps liveaboards in the coastal regions of the south (florida, south Carolina, north carolina)? Someone who could teach me a bit of coastal cruising for about 5 or 6 days at a time? I would greatly appreciate input here as I am very eager to get on a boat and set sail. I have two more weeks of vacation time this year and is love to spend it with some great people while learning to sail. Thanks!
