Anyone used Colgate''''s Offshore Sailing School in Captiva?
In preparation for my first real charter as skipper (BVIs in Jun 02 aboard a 40'' sloop), I am investigating the cruising course offered by Steve Colgate''s Offshore Sailing School.
The rates seem good for the 5 day course (there''s even a special discount - I imagine to perk business back up after 9-11) and the US Sailing Basic Cruising and Bareboat Charter certifications are included (assuming you pass, which I will).
Just wanted to see if anyone else has taken instruction there and hear your comments. TIA.
