Re: asa school vs buying own 20-30ft and teach self?

Buy yourself a boat!

I would suggest first buying a dinghy like a laser, sunfish ect just to mess around with if you don't have experience, if you want to buy a bigger boat in the 18-25ft range then go for it, but invite some people who know how to sail out with you while you're learning the boat, a keel boat is much less forgiving for learning to sail so having someone who has experience is a must until you can nail the basic boat handling,

give it some time and you'll be rockin'!

Also, I've taught several people who've had sailing school lessons and paid ALOT of money, not that all schools are bad but, these individuals learned more in an hour with me than weeks in sailing school, I got them sailing confidently on their own no problem
