Here is another alternative. The School of Sailing and Semanship\Orange Coast College based in Newport Beach, Ca. offers berths on their Sparkman Stevens 65 - Alaska Eagle. The 2010 - 2011 voyage departs from Newport Beach, Ca. on October 30, 2010 for a 7 leg voyage to English Harbor, Antigua, April 29, 2011. Their is a skipper and first mate that work with each crew member for that leg helping them reach their indifivual learning goals. Berths can be purchased for one or more legs. There are some qualifications that you must meet relating to experience and you can find out what those are by going to the schools website at Welcome Aboard! | www.occsailing.com
. I do not work for the school, just a satisfied student of their program.
