Default Learning to Sail

OK, I must be the only person in the Caribbean that has hired a yacht to sail off the west coast of Scotland in May. (Not my choice)

Anyway, before I get on that yacht I want to make sure we have some understanding of what we are doing.

So does anyone know where/who can give me some lessons? I know there is the yacht club as an obvious choice but I don't know any members there.

I'm a complete beginner, though my other half has some experience, though listening to the stories of previous trips it doesn't fill me with confidence.
Thanks
Derek
