Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

The class was set up for 4 students at a cost of $1,499.00 each. Since this was their slow time and I was the only paying student, they sent one of the boat hands to take the course, so there was only three of us. They were offering 25% discount for any additional students, but I was the only one paying on my boat. The monohull that went out with us, had 3 students on it. It ended up costing about $3,000 for the week, including airfare and a layover in Barbados. The trainers are a couple from Canada that live on a monohull, Tony and Nancy. They sailed from Canada, down the west coast, through the Panama Canal and into the Caribbean. Then they sailed across the Atlantic to Malta (where Nancy is originally from), and lived there a year on their boat. They then come back to the Caribbean last summer and have been teaching with BOSS. I highly recommend them, as Tony was my teacher in October.
