As posted earlier my husband and I did a week with water
, in St. Thomas. Instructor was awful (advised ASA
in review). I would not have passed without the other couple teaching me everything. It was the other couple that showed me the weather
vane at the top of the mast
after half a day of my not knowing what I was doing -- it was the other couple that showed me how to reach and plot on the charts
. I had studied everything in tremendous detail prior to the trip, even using flash cards -- but it is not the same as actually doing it. since I had never been on a sailboat before, I would not have passed the exams if I had not spent countless hours going thru the books
sent six months before the class and memorizing and learning
everything I could before the trip. You do not want to have to spend your evenings studying.
