Offshore sailing school has a school on Captiva Island if you want to go that route. More expensive than the ASA courses, but well worth it. I did a Fast track to crusing course as a refresher and got 3 US Sailing certs done in the meantime as well as some fantastic sailing on the ICW and gulf side.

Are you dead set on the west coast? I lived in tallahassee and drove to amelia island. Great instructors, amazing area to learn how to sail, and most affordable. Let me know I'd you're willing to commute...

I've been to this one... Florida Sailing - Florida Sailing School - Florida Sailboat Charter - Team Building

Very impressed with the instructor, quality of education, boats, etc., as well as the price. I would not hesitate to use them again.

They're right downtown St. Petersburg, so a nice area for visiting. Lots of good restaurants and bars in the area. I wouldn't stay at the Vinoy, myself, but only because there are really nice hotels in the area that are a lot less expensive. On the other hand, if you're a baseball fan, and coming before the end of the season, all the visiting teams seem to stay there.
