Hey Matt,

You post in this section just like ya did!

Tell people where you're at, and that you have no experience, but you're a hard worker...

Oh man... You're good.... Hardly ANYONE gets a double post in so soon!


The opportunities are ALL OVER THE CHART!
There's a current thread that asks for $600 to tag along from Miami to the DR... It seems like this guy is doing a delivery, so there are some questions about the guy asking for money, when he is MAKING money...
http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ic-138325.html

There's been recent requests for crew bringing boats South to FL, and they pay all expenses...

If you're just looking for a few day trip, that is different too...

People need to know what you are looking for...

Ok Well I guess that's how I will get to learn to sail. I checked in on the school here and it's like 1800 for one week to learn.

We don't know where "here" is...

If it is LEARNING to sail that's your goal... There are vastly cheaper options... The best way really, is to find a sailing club near you.... They are enthusiastic about new sailors... Cheap monthly/annual dues, lots of boats to use, lots of friends to teach...
