Female sailor seeking female captain (in Maine )

Hello all--
I'm experienced crew, living aboard a Ranger 33 for two years and cruising her to the Bahamian Out Islands from Boston with my captain (male)--but we're talking about buying another boat and I want to brush up my mad skillz. Specifically I'm realizing that I want to be able to single-hand the next boat from stem to stern. I think the best way to do that is some one-on-one cruising with a female captain, a la those "Women Cruising" events that cost a fortune. But I wondered if there's anyone on the Maine coast with a boat who might want a crew member for a day, a night, a weekend, or longer?

Or does anyone know any Maine cruising clubs for women?

All the best!

There is a UK organization called "Girls for Sail" that does all female Ryan classes in the Caribbean during the winter moths

Yeah, I've found similar groups in the US, too, but I was wondering if there was an equivalent club of some sort in Maine or New England.
