We are regulars to Jekyll Island and are seriously considering on wintering at Brunswick Landing marina in the near future.

Being in the right place at the right time has helped me get on boats needing crews from the Islands back to States, especially to and from Ft. LaDida (Lauderdale)..

I've known the folks at Dunbar Sails for years. They are a class act, enjoy your lessons.

As have I. The GA coast, with its fluky winds, shallow waters, and strong currents is fantastic place to learn to sail. Enjoy, although by now, I imagine you've finished up. Hope you had a good experience!

Re: Ga sailing School

Good to hear your evaluation. I've been thinking about doing the 101 classes with them. I'm in the Macon area, and this seems like the closest, best option for a school.
