Learning to sail at Oriental NC

Well as my names say I want to sail. I am thinking about taking some classes (basic Keelboat) at Oriental NC /www.sailingschooloriental.com

Any thoughts? Good or bad idea good or bad place, waste of money etc...

I also plan to purchase these lessons as a gift to a graduating senior in may/june.

and Carolyn Were very patient with me when I was learning to sail with them

Wanna,
The Oriental School of Sailing is run by Chris Daniels and he is a great guy. I haven't taken any of his courses but from a bystanders point of view, they seem to be very thorough and the class size is small enough to get individual attention. Lot's of on-the-water time in the school's two 24ft boats.
