Re: hi i am michel from quebec

Hey Michel, I am from Chambly on the south shore of Montreal. I personally take classes at the international sailing school in Colchester, Vermont. They give courses from the ASA which is recognized internationally.

Re: Hi, I Am Michel from Quebec

Hi Michel,

I grew up in Aylmer, Quebec and learned to sail on Lac Dechenes.
I took the "Zero to Hero" one week ASA Sail training from water sailing">Blue Water Sailing School on a 43 foot catamaran which qualified me to charter.
I sold everything in Ottawa and moved onto a 40 Sailing Catamaran in June 2010.
We've been from the Bahamas up to the Chesapeake and are having a blast.

good luck,

Ross
