Hello everybody ,

I have fallen in love with Uma Sailing and Sailing Florence youtube series recently but literally been enterteining the idea since so long, I have been out in the sea many times as a guest but never actively involved and always wishing to. Hence I have no experience and will be happy if anyone is looking for day sailing or weekends or longer in order first of all to help while learning . I am happy to cover all the expenses for traveling, food etc My ultimate aim is to buy and renovate any affordable boat to sail myself. It would be a dream come true if I can cross the Atlantic. I have to rant a bit about London sailing clubs I have knocked doors to since 2008 and they all snobbishly ignored my presence after having clearly shown my interest and offered any type of help, I have been nearly traumatized by that environement. Seems they are a superior race.

Please let me know if there are any experienced skippers that want to be helped and share his/her knowledge. I am based in South West London (Twickenham)
