Studying Skipper's Course in Israel

Have just purchased a beautiful boat - Beneteau 40 completely equipped and figured it was time I took a Skipper's course so my husband and I could sail alone from Tel Aviv to Turkey or Greece. Would be interested in hearing from other people learning to sail and exchange experience. Right now I'm learning navigation lights - does it get any easier?

nolatom will become famous soon enough
I've taught sailing occasionally, in the US. Shouldn't be any difference in principle (including nav. lights) for the Med. Don't know what the skipper's course is like in Israel, but more training is better, and yes, it does get easier as you gain experience. Don't know your prior sailing experience, but start with the daysails and short overnight trips, and eventually you'll work your way up to the longer cruises. Don't be in a hurry to make that long trip until you have a good bit of experience, and enjoy sailing and that very nice new boat.
