Sailing Schools in South Florida

I am a Marine Vet looking for a good sailing school in South Florida. A couple of schools here offer courses that grants ASA certification and goes 4-5 days along coastal waters. My goal is to buy a sailboat this year (not liveaboard) and sail on weekends or during the week along the coast here in South Florida.



Is it better just to take the basic course and work my way up or would this extended course give me the necessary tools to become a well-rounded "rookie" sailor?


Thank you for your time and looking forward to your responses.

Check out water sailing">Blue Water Sailing School in Ft. Lauderdale. Take the 5 or 6 day course, good way to get started.

Re: Sailing Schools in South Florida

Colgate's "Offshore Sailing School" has locations in both Ft. Myers Beach and on Captiva Island (South Seas Plantation) that offer excellent programs for both novice and somewhat more experienced sailors. And, both are excellent destinations for their own part, IMHO much nicer/better than the east coast of Fla.

FWIW...
