I have done some very basic sailing, with my longest trip being a month down the pacific coast of Costa Rica
, then passing through the canal. It was magical, and I have been eagerly anticipating a MUCH longer adventure ever since. The time has finally come!!!!
Welcome to the forum!
I see your from Calgary. We have a very capable member
here, Jackdale, who also lives in Calgary, although right now I believe he is sailing to or near Hawaii
. Very knowledgable, and as his profile
indicates, includes as his credentials the following:
- ISPA Yachtmaster Offshore Instructor Evaluator
- CYA Advanced Cruising Instructor
- IYT Yachtmaster Coastal Instructor
I believe he holds some courses on Glenmore. It may be worth your while to get in contact with him once he gets back on land.
BTW, I am a fellow Albertan, but live in that wonderful city north of you, Edmonton.
