attention Florida sailers!!

HI, I have just came to florida to get some sailing lessons before the summer moves into full force. I am a young, new boat owner (catalina 30) and would really like to get some miles under my keel.

I was wondering if any of you could recommend a good sailing school along the east coast of florida?

Or if there are any old salts out there that would wont to share some stores and have a drink?

I'm currently in Orlando and soon to be heading to cape canaveral

I'm not here to constantly endorse J-World but they are located in Key West for the winter, you can speak with Matt Mullen this is a US sailing school or you can contact Captain Dave at Southernmost sailing in Key West which is a ASA sailing school, both of these schools are in a great sailing area.
