Ski - Ah, the ski industry! I have fond memories of sleeping with a ski instructor and the woman that took photos on the slopes, and one of the waitresses, and, well, you get the picture. I don't ski much anymore, but I still grin about it, from ear to ear.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
No I WILL NOT wait, not even a minute or a second, besides, a minute is up!

At least one of the sites has english, ie the school, have not tried learning portigese(sp?) as of yet. Tried French, I think mom brided the teacher to pass me, so the teacher would not have to see me the next yr!

Enough of my sarcasim. Time for bed on the right side of the pacific, or left side of NAmerica.

I spent all last summer trying to teach my wife sailing on our boat. She got frustrated easily, as did I, and never built any level of confidence.

My wife went to Bluewater Sailing School in January to learn how to sail. Yes, she went all alone, and was on a boat with 3 other students plus the teacher. I believe it was $1,200-$1,400 for the week including food. She spent the whole week on the boat learning a ton of stuff and has come back highly confident. It was a horrible thing for me to have her away for so long, but the school was excellent and she is now far more interested in actually participating in sailing.

Ok here it is..
Its called Atlantic teams & regatas.



Basically he got 12 Archambault Grand Surprise, a very very very fast boat, and does the sailing courses on these.. first you learn, and as you progress you're racing against the other 11 boats in a week or so..

You sail every day, for 6 to 8 hours, and in the weekend you crew the boat, and rotate positions so everyone is doing something allways. There are 4 races on saturday and 4 on sunday...its wonderfull

And know the owners..their boats, are right in front of mine!!!

Nice people..the guy that looks after the fleet also checks my boat and when I go sailing he helps me tie/untie..real good people

Next week I'll ask for prices

Get this all instructors speak English, because they receive entire buses of British and German people for the week long learning course.

If you don't have barefoot certs, can you challenge to captain your own boat?

I think that we should give women the opportunity to truly master the automobile before we ask them to start comprehending things like running backstays and gibing a spinnaker ... (just kidding...... )
