re: off shore sailing schools advice

I think that most of the schools use monohulls for their training.

I can recommend Rob Swain Sailing School in the BVI, I took some of their ASA courses a while back and was very satisfied.

If you are looking at RYA certified schools you might have to head a bit further than the USVI/BVI, though.

I've known more that one to go through training with Off Shore Sailing School in Tortola and they were pleased. I've actually seen one go from absolute zero to a reasonably competent fair weather sailor in a week.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
