Mike, I exchanged emails with several people who had taken the Adventure Sailing Basic Cruising course both in Midland and the Caribbean; all feedback was positive. I also had quite a few long exchanges with Frank, the instructor, and felt very positive about these, also. I'm convinced that 'live aboard' is the best way to go - intensive experience creates the quickest and most long lived learning!

I'll let you know how I fared, assuming it wasn't so badly as to be worth total silence!

Three weeks to go and the excitement mounts! Which reminds me, I've got to start getting (gear) ready.... don't want the boat to sail without me!
