Windworks Sailing Center. Connie and I just did the second round of classes on sailing over there.
They have a really great series called “Adventure”:http://www.windworkssailing.com/adventure_lessons.htm Lessons where you don’t have to sit a class room and have the instructor say, please say “PORT” class, and you say, “PORT”.
Instead, you read the book at home and then head out, so it is much more practical. After two 2-day sessions and studying the US Sailing books a little, Jim (a great instructor) has got us taking out 38′ sailboats out with ease. How terrific.
Now on to Coastal Navigation and the final class on Bareboat cruising and we are ready to head to Tahiti!
