Potential Future Sailor(s) from Oregon
I have been interested in sailing, and possibly cruising, for about 15 years. Unfortunately, it has taken until now for my wife to finally become interested as well. We are completely inexperienced and know only what we've read online, which typically is almost worthless compared to real world experience.
We aren't really sure where to start. Each of us has only been on a sailboat once. I thought about trying to find a class for us to sign up for, but I'd rather find some folks who would be willing to take us out with them before I sign up for any formal training. We may decide that sailing isn't for us, so I'd rather figure that out first, before we invest too much into this.
Can anyone give me some advice on where to find folks who might be willing to let us tag along with them on local waters?
