Sailing Schools In Tampa/St Pete
I recommend Steve Colgate''s Offshore Sailing School. The live aboard fast track course is excellent. Gets you U.S. Sailing certification in Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising, and Bareboat Cruising. You can challenge the Basic Keelboat if you think you are good enough. You get three days in a nice, homey bed and breakfast while you do Basic Keelboat in a Colgate 26 day sailing. Then you move aboard a hunter, probably a 46 for six days live aboard. Instructors are good, lots of nuts and bolts, lots of boat handling. www.offshore-sailing.com will give you all the scoop on class dates, cost, courses, etc. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask for Suzanne. Tell her Dean Hart sent you. Have fun. (If you want a little more exotic, they also operate out of Captiva Island.
