Getting Experience

Hi,
I am 22, never sailed but eager to start. I am biking to Argentina right now for the next 10 months or so, but would absolutely love to sail at least some portion of my return to USA.
Some questions:
Does anyone have any recommendations for how to find such a passage? Just hanging out around marinas in Ushuaia or in Buenos Aires? How uncommon are such trips?
What can I do to make myself more ready in the meantime? I learned maybe 6 of the most common knots, but that's not much. Does reading help?
Is this just a pipe dream, or do you think I have a legitimate shot at doing this?

I know I should just wait until closer to the end to start worrying about this, but I am so excited by the prospect I can't help it. I have read a lot of fiction about sailing, and know I would love it if I got the chance. Any advice whatsoever would be really appreciated.

Thanks!
