suggest a vacation sailing school?

Hi,

About a decade ago i got my basic keelboat and basic coastal cruising certs. After that I was owned by a small (19') keelboat for a bit, and then sold it. Now I crew maybe 2 or 3 times a year. I'd like to get my bareboat certs, and I'd like to try taking a sailing vacation somewhere warm. I've been at the same company for a number of years and not taken a week off yet, so I'm thinking of taking a week long livaboard sailiing school, perhaps on a cat or something like that.

Anyone have any advice, suggestions, or experience they'd like to share?

Much obliged.

-- James
