In other words, a group lesson wherein you select the group.

If anyone who comes upon this is interested, I have at least one other person besides myself who would be interested in the $250 option. If we can get a crew of 4 to meet on a schedule, we'd be able to learn and work together, which is appealing to me opposed to potentially sailing with a group of strangers each class.

Anyone interested?
That's a very interesting idea. Seems plausible.

Re: Tenderfooted Sailor Girl

Did anyone hook you up yet?

I'm heading to Lake Charles in a few weeks. If you're interested, I can take you on a couple of laps around the lake to show you the basics.

You should just start one. A couple of guys that I sail with here in the Kansas City area (you can't get much more landlocked than KC) started a sailing team when they were in college. They never competed in a single race, but they got several write ups in the school paper, got a page in the year book, and got to tell everyone that they were college athletes. How cool is that?

Might be worth looking into.
