Need Sailing class,North Carolina May13-15, 24ft boat.Ideas where to go-NEW SAILORS!

Greetings! So glad to find this great forum!

I am planning to meet my boyfriend in N. Carolina the weekend of May 13-15th and would like to find some beginning, adult, sailing classes.

We are new to all of this and wish to learn for our 24 foot C&C sailboat.

Any ideas of workshops along the Eastern Coast from Dover to North Carolina welcomed! We'll need more than one workshop, I suspect!

Thanks so much! All assistance greatly appreciated!

I have heard good things about Cape Fear Sailing Academy in Southport.

Another place to check is East Carolina Sailing School in Washington, NC. They operate from space at our marina and primarily use a Capri 22 for beginner classes but do also have a Hunter 27.

This looks grea!

Hey! Thanks so much. This looks to be a really great place.

I will call them tomorrow. The size of the training vessel would be helpful in the sailing of our 24' CandC.

Thanks so much for the advice and the welcome!

This may be a bit late but have you tried

Ed Shires at iidolphins ? He's based in Wilmington NC

I learnt to sail last year with Ed and will always recommend him to anyone who wants to hear Lovely guy - has a beautiful pearson 33.

I am buying a boat this June and have asked Ed if he will come and spend some time with me on mine as I would feel a lot more comfortable if he was there - he agreed without hesitation.

I completed the 101,103 and 104 with him and will be back for the next step.

I would second the recommendation of Ed Shires at ii dolphins from Wrightsville Beach. He has experience, and believes on hands on teaching with small group.

Also he emphasizes docking and anchoring which we all can use more help.

I also will recommend Captain Ed Shires. Ed moved aboard our boat on January 2, 2010 for almost ten days and taught ASA 101,103, 104 and then we did hands-on sailing as weather allowed.

His instruction provided the confidence for us (brand new sailors) to begin doing day sails...then week ends, and last fall... a 2000 mile trip to the Florida Keys.

Thank you Ed!
