Re: Best way to go?
Being stuck in Alberta is not an issue. You are 75 minutes (by air) from some of the best sailing in the world. There are lots of Alberta sailors; I know, I taught many of them. I can point you to instructors in Edmonton if you wish. I can also point you to schools in Vancouver or on Vancouver Island.
