I just finished some classes at Rob Swain Sailing school (see http://www.swainsailing.com/index.asp) and can highly recommend them. The prices are fair and the tuition excellent. The sailing condition in the Caribbean are great [even during the hurricane season] and the Rob Swain school has a great Jeanneau 43DS and a wonderful Jeanneau 45.2 to choose from (there might be others, but those were the 2 at the dock last week). The classes not only teach you what you need to know but combine that with a tour of some of the more picturesque islands and locales. Plus you get to put "Anegada" into your logbook - most charter companies keep Anegada "off limits" to charterers unless they give you a captain or you can show that you've already been there.
