The Baltimore Sailing Center is closer to you and might be worth checking out. I don't know what there is further up the bay.

Hi Joel,

Thanks for the reply. We live up in Harford county (Bel Air). Most our boating originates out of Middle River. Annapolis could work for us, as it's just over an hour away. But I think I might be able to find something from Baltimore to Havre de Grace to possibly be more convienant. Most of the same sailing skills are shared on both monhull and cats. Handling character being the biggest difference. So I have no issue learning more on a monohull and taking those skills to a cat.

Thanks

David
