Talking new to forum/kinda new to sailing

greetings from the land locked state of CO. as my title says i'm new to the forum and am hoping to learn a lot.

i do have some experiance sailing but it was on lakes 10-12 years ago on a 22 ft catlina. and now i'm itching to get back in to it. i used to ditch school for a week at a time and steal my moms boat. and just cruise folsom lake and tahoe... i miss that..
i know it will be a cupple of years before i can claim to have any margin of experiance. but mainly what i want now is some advice on the sailing schools is the ASA or the US sailing school which is better? which one has a more comprensive program?

my ultimat goal is to just cruise everywhere. right now i'm starting on the basics. and will think about a boat later on.

thanks for any help

Aloha,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you here. Either ASA or U. S. Sailing are equally good but more often it is the instructor that makes them best or better.
Buy the book "Start Sailing Right!" and you won't be disappointed.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Welcome – I’ve not been here long myself, but there is a wealth of knowledge on this board… Have no insight on formal sailing schools, sorry, but I can appreciate your “land-locked” state of affairs, having grown up through high-school in the Dakotas…

We had a pretty negative experience with Victoria Sailing School in Denver. Would be happy to PM about it.
