You need to come south and enjoy warm weather sailing unless you want to purchase an icebreaker.

Bienvenu,

Take classes. Read Chapman's Piloting and Small Boat Seamanship. Go take on the water sailing lessons. (Not now, in the spring when it warms up.) Hitch some rides. The people who race little sail boats always need crew and it's a good way to learn the basics.

Bon Chance.
