I've been saving a while for time off work and it's finally come through. I've cruised 10 days on a Bavaria
46' and loved it so I want to learn to sail for recreation and perhaps future racing
one day. I've also done 1-2 weekends of race
training but it's been too infrequent to learn properly. I now do want to learn properly but don't know how / where is best! So I'm taking suggestions on your ideal way of doing it, on the following rules:
- £10k budget
- up to 8 weeks preferred, 16 max
- time off is start feb - end july
- any location in the world - thank you airmiles!
- aim to be able to competently skipper
/ sail a 46' sail boat (with lay crew) for holidays, potentially take up racing
as a crew member
All I have at the moment is a dream and a total lack of knowledge of who the best schools are and where the best sailing experience would be. I'm hoping a few of you experienced folk will be able to describe your ideal learning
experience that matches with what I can manage!
Thanks for your advice,
