I've been looking at various cruising schools in St Thomas and Tortola, including Blue Water
, Fair Wind
, Swain, and Offshore
. They all seem to offer about the same thing - credits for 3 ASA classes
on a week long cruising school
on 42 to 44 footers. However, the prices are all over the map - from $1800 all-in at two schools, to $4300 at one school
. I am acutely aware of the phrase you get what you pay for, and I am also well acquainted with the concept
Anyone know why the prices are so widely spread? Anyone care to recommend any of these schools? I'll be in Tortola the first week of January, 2011.
