SF Bay Area Info
In July I will be visiting family in the San Franciso Bay Area, but I have set aside time to schedule some sailing lessons. Does anyone have any recommendations for schools/instructors/etc? Any personal experiences to tell?

Though my husband and I sail our Cal 22 on Colorado lakes, and have chartered in the Caribbean and La Paz, I want to sign up for individual study.

Thanks for your help.

Basic Cruising - 3 days inst. (24hrs) $595=$198/day
