Asa

Hi,
In the Caribbean there are charter companies who are ASA registered all through the island chain, but in these cases you charter a bareboat and add an ASA skipper who can do various courses with you. The schools are in the USVI/BVI.
For getting through the course materials and really improving in good time the bareboat + skipper is a good way to go. At sailing school you can spend a long time sitting around waiting for everyone else to finish their manoverboard procedures. Doing a charter + ASA instructor is more expensive but if you fill the boat with friends it can work out at a good price and with the one-on-one instructor time I'd suggest you get the value for the money too.
Just some thoughts, hope it helps!
Ben

Well after months of putting it off (it's amazing how quickly something like 'learn to sail' can be left behind) I'm calling a local marina in the morning that has a "complete sailing course" that from what I can tell, the 101 and 103 certs are included and come at the end of the classes (some of them are on the water)

It looks like a good deal, and it's close. After all, at worst i'll walk away with more sailing knowledge than I have now.
