Thought I should give more info:
I'm looking to start asap, so I have time to sail after the 3-4 months of fast track.
I've read that South UK is good as I can learn a lot with the weather
conditions in UK. Some schools people have suggested in the UK look very nice (UKSA, Hamble etc), but the problem is that I already missed this slot and I'll have to wait for February.
Some say South Africa
is also a good place due to its extreme weather
conditions (but I haven't been there before, so I wouldn't know). Sail Due South is an option, but I haven't found any reviews
aside from the ones on their website/facebook page.
I thought Blue Oyster
Sailing in Spain/Gibraltar was nice, but I've read a handful of negative reviews
, so that's off my list. Do you guys have any experiences with schools in Europe
I'm avoiding to take the course in South East Asia
because my Competent Crew instructor says that learning
it in SEA waters is a waste of time because there isn't much challenge, and at the end of the day, I'd want to be confident with my skills.
