Re: Where in the world to learn in August?

You might try the Pacific North West. The wind tends to drop, but the good instructors know where the wind will develop.

If you can get into Canada, you can swim in Desolation Sound in the warmest water north of Panama.

This is the place to learn navigation: lots of rocks, big tides, swift currents.

The scenery is spectacular and the wildlife abundant.
