The Moorings

It sounds like a joke that somebody asks information about "The Moorings" boat chartering etc. company, particularly now that it has merged (at least as far as ownership is concerned) with the other heavyweigt in the field, i.e. "Sunsail".

Brad,

Excuse Chrondi's answer. It is just the Mooring is the one of the largest if not the largest charting company in the world, and most folks in the sailing world have heard of them. Since you clearly stated you were a "crusierwannaa be", it was assumed you had some sailing experence, thus I am sure why he thougt the question odd.
I'd go to an American Sailing Association or US Sailing web site and look for schools and charter companies for your local area. Only one I am familar with is Maryland School of Seamanship, in Maryland.

Good Luck with your search...by the way many, many folks charter from Moorings all over the world.

John

Moorings Charters

The Moorings is a top level charter company. First class all the way - their prices reflect that fact also. Nevertheless, you can't go wrong with the Moorings, as a rule (sooner or later every company stumbles and there is always someone with a horror story). If you have the money, the Moorings is the way to go.

RE Moorings charter

I just chartered for the first time with the Moorings (As opposed to cruising on my own boat) out of St. Martin. I was very happy with everything.

Try http://www.soundingspub.com/ME2/Default.asp Soundings Magazine is LI Sound based and a number of local charters should be listed in it. Also the back of Sail or Sailing World, etc.

Talking

I went with Footloose Sailing Charters, the Moorings' second tier company which still has great service, but much cheaper rates as the boats are 5-7 yrs old. http://www.footloosecharters.com .
