Re: Great Experience at Bluewater Sailing School and a Happy New Year
I too completed ASA 104 & 105 with BWSS with Bill as our instructor in Feb. 2010. We sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami in relativley clam conditions practicing coastal navigation all the way down. The next night we departed Miami around 2:00 AM for Bimini. The Gulf Stream crossing was in exceedingly challenging conditions (both ways). The crew really learned alot about seamanship and navigation under the watchful eye of Capt. Bill. As is stated many times in these forums, you need to get out and challenge yourself to really understand what the boat can do, but more importantly, what you can do. To do so under a skilled captain who will guide and cajole you...not just show you...is a real plus. I would highly recommend him!
