Re: Are sailing schools worth it?

Sailing is a hands-on sport. Books and classes are great but you need the time on the water to fully understand the information and develop skills. If you plan on day sailing and coastal cruising, take the ASA 101-104 sequence. Use the remaining funds to obtain regular access to a sailboat. Smaller boats are better for learning sailing. Local sailing non-profits are a great way to learn if one is in your area. Also read every sailing book you can find.
