Re: Hello from Florida

Welcome!
What kind of boat, how much and where have you sailed?
This is a great place with lots of nice folks all of whom have opinions - many of which contradict one another!

My wife and I will be in Florida mid December (actual dates to be confirmed) and would like to take 2 or 3 days of sailing lessons.

we currently own a CS 36t which we purchased last year and have taken basic sailing courses.
Since we will be in the port Charlotte area we wanted to take the opportunity to do some sailing with an instructor.

It doesn't necessarily have to be in Port Charlotte, but anywhere within an hours radius.
Any suggestions or referrals would be appreciated.

Henry
