I just joined the Forum today.
This is the fourth year sailing for my wife and I. We are both in our early 50's. We first joined a local sailing club and found it a great way to learn sailing. While books
and magazine articles are well and good, we found the key to learning
is having great teachers and this sailing club has them. They do not own boats, but set up a sailing program each year. You sign up for the trips you are interested in and pay as you sign up. Since joining, we have sailed about 65 days in 3 years, and have got our ASA
and USGS Aux basic/advanced coastal navigation
certificate. Most of the sailing is on the Chesapeake, but we have sailed in the Keys and Long Island
and Block Island Sounds.
We're doing a 2 week trip with the club to Desolation Sound this August and thinking of getting our ASA
103/104 certificates this winter
, preferably in the BVI's.
Does anyone have any recommendations of ASA sailing schools in the BVI's? I looked through the forums
, but could not find any current
