Getting Back Into Sailing

Hello! I have been away for 7 years after sailing 420's and Optimists every summer for 10 years. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things now that I'm done with school. Looking for recommendations on how to ease back into it (if I need to) and how to work my way up to crewing on a larger class of boats. My goal is to gain enough proficiency to facilitate a delivery on the ICW within the next couple of years, and then gain more confidence as I go along. I appreciate any guidance!

Why not just go to a yacht club and see what you've forgotten?
