Recommended Sailing Schools

Does anyone know of good sailing schools in the Northern Chesapeake Bay area? I think I found one in havre de grace but I have not driven down yet to check it out.
What are your experiences with sailing schools in that part of the country?

Maryland School of Seamanship has an Excellent Reputation.

The director of sailing there, David Applebee is a serious sailor and the staff are very professional.

I did two classes at the maryland school which is top notch. I also did one at Havre de Grace (I cant remember the name of the school) and thought it was excellent also. The only issue with Havre de Grace is that there is a lot of shallow water up at the top of the bay so that the more advanced classes have to go a long way to get to open water deep enough to sail in. In the beginner classes it doesnt matter as much since you are on a smaller boat and learning very basic stuff.
