OK. If I read this thread correctly, the schools are all good and the instructors make the difference. Should we have a composite listing of great instructors? Just a suggestion from a newbie that will one day want to know this information.

Good idea MrRagu.

We used David Kummerle for multiple liveaboard/learn-to-sail charters and he was FABULOUS! He was in charge on Annapolis Sailing School branch in St Croix before he went private.

Got mine through Bay Area Sailing in Kemah, Texas at Watergate Marina. I was extremely impressed at how seriously they focused on safety. Far beyond the ASA material. Three days on a really nice 38 Beneteau. "All" of the instructors had many years experience, were patient, and didn't let you leave without knowing you understood completely every detail of what they taught. Captain Steve Weir was my instructor.

My only complaint was the BBQ grill needed clips for the lid. That's it. Had a blast!!! I plan to fill out the rest of my training there.
