Getting Started Sailing

Sailing may not be as common a sport as bowling or football but if you live near water it can be just as accessible. You don't have a boat? You've never sailed? You don't know any sailors? You don't have the funds for lessons? It doesn't matter. There’s a wonderful symbiotic relationship for any would-be sailor to take advantage of: you need a boat and the skipper needs crew.

Crewing on a sailboat usually does not require any special skills, background or ability except for the desire to learn and a good attitude (offering to bring along snacks is never discouraged). If you don’t have a boat of your own or much sailing experience it can be a fantastic way to get out on the water, learn new skills, meet new people, and enjoy the sport. Here are a few tips and hints for finding a boat, having fun, and getting invited back.
