Re: Hello All, New SailBoat Owner & Smiling (1st day)

Yes, You are Absouletely Right, I need to attend some sailing classes in the Panama City, FL area. I learned to sail in Grenanda in 1983. I was assigned there for several months after the little conflict there in 83. I have seen advertisments on Sailing by different schools in the area. I have a fair understanding of navigation and chart usage, etc. . I have some paper charts of the Panama Area & greater FL ocean area, have been looking at them a little each week.
I was looking at the diifferent certifications and saw a couple priced out at -- $ 7XX.XX for up to a 100 ton license. Now, what I really need, to hire a well qualified skipper that would go out on my boat and train me. I'd like to be prepared for being caught in a un-forecast weather. I will have the necesaary training before hand ... to get through it ....without a nervious breakdown or worst, going down.
