Annapolis last minute noob plea
I'm landlocked and really must figure out how to start learning to sail, beyond youtube channels and books and daydreaming. As it happens, I'm in Annapolis this week. Of course it's last minute, so it seems everyone offering official ASA 101 certifications are booked (or, more commonly, offer weekend classes only). Does anyone have any insight on someone or some school that might not pop up on the first several pages of a google search who would take a guy out for a day or two middle of next week for a reasonable price? I'm less interested in a certificate than I am on getting on a boat with someone knowledgable and listening and learning and doing.

In the (likely) event this is impossible on this schedule, I'm inclined to schlep back out to Maryland from Cincinnati later in the summer for a 101/103 class. Any recommendations on schools? There seem to be a lot of options.

I hope I've put this in the right forum. I'm new. Thank you all.

Did you try j-world? Also possible to show up at the AYC docks on a Wed around 4 to crew for Wed night racing. Just ask if anyone has space for a newbie. I haven't been racing this year so not sure if there's a COVID requirement that might make that not work right now.

I did classes at Annapolis Sailing School and would recommend them.
