We (my girlfriend (33) and myself (38)) live in Colombia
and are looking to get some training/certifications. Preferably certifications that are internationally recognized like ASA
or RYA or similar.
I am a German citizen and have been sailing since my early childhood, mostly on my parents 32´ sailboat. I have done daysailing in many places around the world and have sailed on a 44´ catamaran
from Rio de Janeiro to Trinidad as crew. I do not carry any certifications though.
The idea is to buy a boat within a year to go cruising/circumnavigate.
What course would you recommend for me to take?
Do you know of any schools that offer this and would be close to Colombia
Easiest places to reach for me include: Panama
, Trinidad, ABC
My girlfriend would accompany me and start with some basic sailing course.
She is a Colombian citizen (visas for most other countries than those stated above are problematic!) and has never sailed before.
Thank you very much for your help/ideas!
