Searching for a captain and a teacher

I am a 44 year old man that has always wanted to sail around the world for a year or two. I am selling my home in Jacksonville FL and planning to buy a sailboat. Theres a catch. I don't have any substantial sailing experience.

I have about 75K to buy a boat and equipment / food etc.

I am searching for a seasoned sailor to assist in finding a boat, and sailing for the foreseeable future while teaching me all the while. I am athletic, masters degree and former government guy. I'm quiet, do yoga and like to read. I lived in Africa for a long time and have simple needs.

I am 6'3 so I will want a larger boat.

I know this may seem like a strange post, but I have the cash and I am seeking a year or two of great adventure and great education.

I imagine some salty old sailor or a young smart wiz kid. Either way, I just want to learn to sail and appreciate the water.

I hate email and messages, so if you are interested, just call me.
