Learn to sail vacations work fine. We did the two ASA
courses after the first one as a vacation
in San Diego
. It helps to do all the reading and book work before you go. There is a lot of it and if you can pass the exam it feels better at the end.
Anything that gets you out on the water
is a good thing. Delaware River is not the easiest place to sail. If you can master that you really can sail anyplace. We did our sea trial there in our current
boat. 25 knots of wind
with a mid tide current
and a bit of mist. Down right nasty place. Still can't beat the Rivers Inn view over in NJ below the DelMar bridge at sunset. Hope to get back in a few weeks.
