After I took the lessons and got some certification, I sailed in flotilla 4 times. It did wonders to boost my confidence and competence. Plus I met a lot of interesting people and visited some places I would not have known about. The flotilla captains provided excellent chart briefing, the engineers kept everything shipshape, and the hostesses gave recommendations about provisioning, restaurants, shopping, and could arrange tours of sites ashore.
One trip was in the Gulf and San Juan Islands; the other three were in Turkey.
