Re: BVI July 2014
Hello FarCry, The reference to WW 'yaking is facetious. LOL! Has nothing to do with sailing technicals -- that was the joke. However, I did point-out that WW requires the ability to make fast but correct decisions. That was in response to someone saying a "deer in headlights" look is not good for a prospective sailor. Dude doesn't know me, so I stated, "deer in headlights" + WW = really bad time. Gotta be a cool customer for sure.
Anyway, just starting to network on this. Yup, we (wifey-Maureen & moi) wanna learn to sail while visiting a new area. Prob get in some snorkeling and hiking along the way. Staying on St. John afterwards and will hit-up one of the dive shops -- we are Advanced OW certified.
Instructor captain need not be ASA if s/he is a good teacher and knows the business. Familiarity with BVI is definite plus -- we want to find all the good spots. We love adventure and like active vacations. Enjoy having a good time, drinks, live music, but aren't party animals. Want a nice set-up for the July 12 Full Moon. Yeah, I'm a researcher and planner extreme.
