Sailing World Open Up!!!

Hello Everyone!

I have been spying this forum for months and realized that it would be a great time to introduce myself and gain some of your insights.

I have been sailing lasers and 420s for a few summers, and while my skills are still rusty, I can get around with small boats with some advice from others. I am happy that my girlfriend has joined my sailing dreams and we started taking sailing classes in NY/NJ.

We realized that a great way to advance our skills would be to go for a live-aboard trip with someone, or just take one of those extended sailing courses. We have time from May 23rd to 28th and could do it in the U.S. and surrounding areas. If it's hotter climates, - even better!

Do you know anyone who we could join for a few days of sailing? We are pretty fun people to hang out with.. We could cover the cost, provide provisions, etc, etc. Also, we could attend some classes, but it's hard to find them and many of them are very pricey. Do you have any suggestions?

We look forward to your sailor wisdom! All we know is that we cannot wait to get on the water.

K&O.

Thank you for the suggestion. Annapolis could work. Could you recommend any sailing programs? We would like to live on the boat and sail during these days.

Re: Sailing World Open Up!!!

Annapolis Sailing School has a cruising course that gives you exactly that.

You cruise around the Chesapeake with a sailing instructor, and stay on the boat. I think it's 5 days. It's a good course, and it's fun.

Thanks! I emailed them!

Does anybody else have any suggestions? Perhaps something at warmer waters as well? What are reasonable prices per day per person for these types of lessons?
