Re: My Liveaboard Cruising experience with Offshore Sailing School

Yeah, the boat was only a month old!

Price for two was $4730 total. That included $150 extra for US Sailing certification. If you don't want that, subtract $75 per person. Of course, you need to factor in airfare, tip, spending money, etc. we bought food at the resort too so that gets added.

My definitely got a lot out of it. A lot of firsts. At the end of the week, she felt comfortable driving and docking the boat on her own (with us handling dock lines for her, of course). For us, it was worth the money. Your mileage may vary.

We don't have a boat of our own but joined a club that has Sonar 23' keelboats. She thinks docking those under sail will be a breeze now we'll see!
