The discover sailing for 1.5 hrs is costing me 60$. If I take the whole course it is around 2000$ after which I will also get a certificate.



My question is....Is it the right way to spend so much(almost any school is around this range) for a week? Or is there other way

No. Sailing is easy and a hands-on sport. Just read a basic book on it.
