Learning in Tampa/St Petersburg?

Anyone recommend a school in the Tampa/St Petersburg area.

Are class the easiest way to learn? or should I join some type of club?

Learning in Tampa/St Petersburg?

To learn basic sailing, I think any of the well-known sailing schools will do a good job. If you get to the point that you want to learn more advanced subjects, such as racing or bluewater sailing, then certain of them specialize in those areas. I took courses at Annapolis Sailing School about 30 years ago, and thought they did a good job. Colgate School on Captiva Island has a good reputation. There are others. To get started, just take a 2 day, basic, on the water course at any good sailing school, and then get out on the water as much as you can and practice what you learn.
