Hello all......first time poster here.
Question : As a guy who would like to experience sailing on lake waters - I'm not at all sure on how one finds the opportunity. I've nothing against oceans other than the much more involved charters etc. of going that route
. I did that once and found the ocean a formidable challenge. I'm not skilled enough to sail on my own - and years ago I had a brief experience on a medium lake (Deep Creek MD) that was absolutely outstanding.
For ex. Are there lakes in the East, perhaps New England
where one could take himself onboard someone's 22' - 36' craft for a 2 hour sail with light winds and come back feeling good ? Perhaps it's not as feasible without contacts or friends, whatever....but I can't get that Deep Creek experience out of my head
However, the day I experienced was a college course on Sailing where the instructor invited
students out for a single
afternoon at the end of the course once.....Very nice time on that small boat. And if there are only big get-togethers around the major lakes region - the bigger waters would take you away from that smooth type of sailing, correct ?
Any locations known where one could come approach finding this type of excursion ?
