Puerto Rico Sailing School suggestions

Any sailing school suggestions for Puerto Rico? We may be taking a cruise ship out of Puerto Rico this spring. Wondering if spending an extra day or 3 in PR would be worth it.

Our other choice may be something out of the Keys this spring. We may be visiting a friend in Marathon, but not sure of their health situation yet.

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Re: Puerto Rico Sailing School suggestions

Well this cruise trip has been booked, with flights in and out not allowing any sailing school time anyways.

Probably best, we have friends we may be visiting in Marathon that may show us the lines on their catamaran. These folks have been extremely helpful in our learning curve, spending many hours on the phone and in emails answering my questions. We could never repay them. Just have to try and live the dream they've accomplished.

If you decide to look for other options in the Caribbean, Check out our website. Let me know if you have any questions - we would love to have you come sailing with us in the Grenadines!!!

Re: Puerto Rico Sailing School suggestions

If you are in the Caribe I'd look at Paul Exner's Modern Geographic. He's a very experienced sailor and educator.
