Selecting a school

Right now I'm considering the Mariner Sailing School (in Virginia), J World Annapolis, the Chesapeake Sailing School, and BaySail. Any experience with these schools? Any opinions? Any other recommendations?

The schools you quote have 3 different programs, Red Cross, ASA and US sailing. Firstly, you need to establish which program you would like to follow. essentially: Red Cross is very basic, ASA is more cruising focussed and US Sailing is more racing focussed. Once you have done this narrow your choice to 3/4 schools by location/cost etc and then call them and ask about their program and ask if you can speak to former students. You're spending good money - get a good school!
