ISO Sailing Mentor -- Erie PA


I am a young man looking for a sailing mentor in the Erie PA area (I live ~1hr south).

Being originally from Arizona my sailing resume is a bit sparse. My love and knowledge of sailing has come mostly from reading Bernard Moitessier, Joshua Slocum, Richard Henry Dana, &c. and from following the Vendee Globe and other sailing challenges. Now, I am looking for an opportunity to live my dreams and spend time on the water -- but need some practical experience. I realize there are sailing clubs and schools but would rather find a sailing mentor to learn from. If you are [or know of] a capable sailor who would be willing to take me on as a student and hopefully build a friendship I would appreciate the recommendation.

Thank you
