Lessons for Women in SD

A friend of mine was inquiring about a good place for women to get sailing lesson in San Diego. Does anyone have any experience with this?

My brother was a member at Seaforth (downtown) for a while. He took ASA 101 there. He enjoyed it but it was a bit for for him to travel (Orange County).

We rented out of both SeaForth and Harbor Island Yacht club for a while before taking the plunge - would recommend the latter if your friend wants somewhere to rent as well.

Not sure what their courses are like but watching them from afar they seemed pretty professional.

The best course in the region, allegedly, is up at Orange Coast Coastal and they have courses just for women.

Check out Sea Sense

Sailing and Powerboating for Women at Sea Sense

They're out of FL but conduct lessons all over. It's all women, no men allowed. you can do anything from 3 - 10 days.

I did a 3 day class with them in CT and it was great. I learned alot and my self confidence in being able to handle things greatly improved. I started looking forward to going sailing instead of dreading it!

LIFE is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well perserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and Proclaiming - WOW WHAT A RIDE!

Hey there, are you looking for classes run by women, with women only? Or are you just looking for a good school that women can feel comfortabel in? I took lessons at J World San Diego and highly recommend them.

Yeah, I know the J World guys & they're good people (actually I guess I could give a personal recommendation as I've not taken their classes).
