My name is Ben. I live in bluffton south Carolina just off of Hilton Head island. I am an electrician, and am extremely interested in learning to sail. I came to meet cool people in here. Nice to meet you all!

Re: Hello

Welcome aboard Ben.

Your first stop should be your local marina and see if anyone is looking for a crew. Then you get to learn to sail and to sail... for free.

Re: Hello

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Ask the local sailing/yacht club if they have lessons to offer their members. A basic lesson will indicate to you whether you truly want to sail and should cost very little.
kind regards,
