I had the good fortune to sail a Lagoon 380
last summer on the Chesapeake. Had one day of instruction then was able to bareboat
with my friends for a second day (not windy). It was everything I had imagined. We want more, we want more ...
So aside from frantically working on means to afford renting
and perhaps owning a larger catamaran
one day, I've been trying very hard to figure out my "way in" so-to-speak. Some questions, if I may. I live in Manassas, VA. Annapolis
has been my logical nearest port. Someone please correct me if there's someplace else nearby DC / NoVA that's better.
Near me seems to be mainly ASA
. There is one NauticEd shop, but I'm not clear on how well that's honored globally.
II. Costs and time getting the license
Nautic Ed requires 4 days on the boat. ASA classes
seem similar but the # of days required on a boat seems to vary by school
. Generally, ASA classes
seem to cost more.
My ideal would be a place and method where I could get certified via a number of day sails
. Not sure if either exists.
Can anyone recommend one near DC / Annapolis
