New User and Already a Question

Hi,

I'm a 28 year old guy from the kootenays in BC, i've only done one breif sailing trip in Australia but have lot's of experience fishing on the west coast with my 20" fishing boat. I'd like to take a 4-5 day intro sailing course to get me up to speed on the in's and outs of the sport, i'll buy a boat this winter with expectations of cruising vancouver island area next year most of the summer........

any info on a reputible sailing school in Vancouver area would be great.

thanks in advance

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I can't think of a better place to start. The Vancouver and Vicatoria areas of Canada are great places to sail.
kind regards,
