Since I am a busy professional and had only limited experience ( sunsail experience at one jamaican resort), and I had already bought a Catalina 30, it was well worth it to pay a professional teacher for 1 on 1 lessons on MY boat. The teacher tailored everything to the local conditions and the actual boat I was going to use. It actually cost less than a group sailing course.

I just purchased a Tartan 34 C in Palmetto in the Florida West coast, Engine tuneup and bottom paint is been done, I need to bring the boat all the way to ST Augustine, on the east coast, I have very limited sail experience and looking for someone with sail experience to travel at least until Key West or Marathon, I can't pay too much but if you need the hours for your captain lisence this is a great opportunity, I will be departing on Oct 24th.
Call me if you are interested, 305-234-2311

FWIW, there are three schools in Annapolis that I am aware of. Chesapeake Sailing School uses Tanzer 22s and Annapolis Sailing School uses Rainbows. Both are located on Bembe Beach Road (which is Edgewood Road when you turn left off of Bay Ridge). If you want to learn "performance sailing" (i.e., racing), J World in Eastport uses J-80s.

I taught at Annapolis Sailing School for a couple of summers. They have a great weekend program (used to be two weekends) that combined classroom and practical. Very basic instruction. They also used to have an intermediate weekend/overnight class using Annapolis 25's were you would learn rafting and anchoring techniques.

That was the most fun job I ever had. Earned $25/day for a 10 hour day
