The Best Birthday Gift Ever!...?

I just opened my new to me P-23 that I aquired from one of my best friends a week ago. It was like opening Pandora's Box and The Best Birthday Gift I have ever gotten. This little old girl is a mess. She's begging for me to fly her but, she's got quite a few long days of TLC (and I've got a lot of learning to do) before that's gonna happen. Any ideas on the best, most economical, sailing schools/instructors in the Annapolis, MD area?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sailing Schools

There are three I know of in Annapolis. J World in Eastport uses either J-22s or J-24s and is more oriented toward performance (racing) sailing. Chesapeake Sailing School is located in the Port Annapolis facility on Bembe Beach Road (Back Creek) and uses Tanzer 22s. Annapolis Sailing School is at the end of Bembe Beach Road and uses Rainbows. Call them to find out about classes and prices. I know that CSS and ASS offer weekend programs.

labatt will become famous soon enough
What's your budget? We got private lessons on our own boat from a guy who works at J World for around $200 for the day.

Great Cusions

GotTheNotion,

Hey great cusions on your boat. I know you sew, did you do them? If you did, you ought to look into doing it as a business...probably lots of room for great workmanship.

Thanks guys

I ended up signing up for a weekend at Annapolis Sailing School. Turns out that I did some tax work with the owners father. I got a great deal for Memorial Day weekend, pay for the weekend course and get an extra day on Monday for free. That deal is for anyone, not just because I knew someone.

Thanks for the plug on my cushions, CliffL. I actually do sew as a business and love doing boat interiors. If anyone needs some sprucing up, let me know.

Professional job

No problem. Always nice to see a professional job. I knew that you sewed, but I had no idea that you were a pro. I should have guessed by the way that you handled the wood...er... You know what I mean...the wood on the companionway..... (hmmm...did I actually say what I think I did? seems sometimes my inner monologue doesn't work quite right...sorry )

Lol

Yes CliffL,

I am an expert seamstress and a skilled artisan when it comes to wood working. I also have many other attributes suitable for sailing (cooking, cleaning, strong, agile, hard working, intelligent). Huh, I guess I am a powerful little thing.

Now teach me how to sail that P-23!
