Try Houston Yacht Club. Even if you don't join they can probably help a lot finding someone local for classes, and would be my first place to get to know people. Houston actually have a pretty good sailing scene you just need to get keyed into it.

Misti,

Search for a website called "Sailingtexas(dotcom"

It will have loads of information that will help and guide you, along with many boats for sale.

Also look at another site called "sailboatlistings(dotcom)"

I concur! The Watergate / Waterford area offers just about everything. Brokers, sailing schools, boatyard, and other services.
