Greetings and WELCOME aboard, Michell.

Perhaps, you could begin by telling us a little about yourself, and what kind of sailing you’d like to begin?

Aloha Michell,
Welcome aboard! Hope you enjoy this forum. It is all about cruising and living aboard boats both sailboats and powerboats. If that's what you are looking for then this is it.
Kind regards,

Welcome Michell,
There are many places to begin. I suspect members on this board started at different places. Some grew up on sail boats, others read cruising books/magazines, and others took sailing classes. Yes, a few even had friends take them for a sail. Choose your starting point and go for it.
