Re: Are sailing schools worth it?
This is one of those questions that for every sailor, there is a different opinion. Mine is this: If you're one of those folks (like I was) who can read a manual and then with minimal instruction, go do it... then I suggest do it that way... but you have to have a boat. With lessons at a school, you're paying for use of the boat, the maintenance, the insurance, the business overhead, the instructor's fees... A person today without access to a boat has limited choices.
