Take the lessons, and learn some good habits right from the beginning. People do survive by just reading, and learning, but most run into hardship at one level, or another. Your boarding experience will be a great advantage for you.......BEST WISHES in everyhting going smoothly. You are at the doorstep to the wonderful Bahamas......ENJOY........i2f
SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!

welcome aboard !
I took those very same classes a while ago ...very helpful even for those who have sailed on their own for many years . i am very happy I did and you won't regret it. I took mine through ASA ... very good teachers and courses.
