Weeklong 101-104 Programs

hi,

I'm pretty new to sailing keelboats (I have some limited dingy sailing experience). I'm in the marker for a weeklong multi certification course. does anyone know of a good/reputable one?

Where are you located? If you are looking to travel, there are a number of comprehensive sailing vacations available in the Caribbean.

The only 101-104 weekong combinations I have heard of are in the BVI's. You might do a search of ASA and find a site that does that combination. If you have a group that is interested (3-4 normally) most of them will structure something for you.

You might try Bay Breeze Yacht Charters in Traverse City, Mi. Bay Breeze Yacht Charters & Sales. They are an ASA school and charter company. One of the options they offer is 101-103 in a four day class and then they allow you to charter the class boats ( 30' Catalinas) for a three day cruise on your own.

Grand Traverse Bay is a great learning environment.

Good Luck

Thanks for the tip. Hopefully I can schedule it; I only have about a 10 day window before I disappear.

If you are talking about the next ten days....go SOUTH!

This time of year the water temp is 37 degrees in Lake Michigan, which means that about 1/2 mile off shore the temperature gets real close to that.

I highly recommend SeaMist Skippers in Marina Del Rey, California.

My wife and I just did 101-103 there last month and we were both pleased with our course, instructor (Paul Guthrie) as well as the price.

Thanks for all the input. I chose BWSS as it turned out to be the only one that offered all the courses and fit my limited time window.

Assume you are referring to Blue Water SS in Ft. Lauderdale. Good choice this time of the year.

Yeah, it looked like it was the most sailing-oriented program i could find. I'm taking a basic keelboat class at the Milwaukee Sailing Center about a month beforehand, so hopefully I should have a slight leg up.
