San Juan Sailing School

Any opinions on San Juan Sailing School? Last year I completed ASA 106 with Maryland School of Sailing in the Virgin Islands and learned a lot and was impressed with their program, instructor and boat. I would like to repeat the class for the additional experience and to sail in a completely different environment. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!

Repeating the course?

Read some books instead. Take an online course. Watch a video course. Buy a boat. Charter a boat. Read this forum religiously.

Re: San Juan Sailing School

Several PNW companies offer mileage builder sessions. Or charter a boat in a flotilla. Both of these will provide you with experiences to build your competence and confidence.

Re: San Juan Sailing School

I do read Sailnet and other forums extensively...and charter with the family in the Carribean every other year (I'll be chartering in the Abacos next March). Since I live in Colorado, buying a boat, at this point, is not an option. I'm looking to refine and improve my skills under the direction of a more experienced instructor, under more challenging conditions than I would take my family, that I way I have more confidence and experience in challenging conditions if/when they happen. I would be very interested to learn what companies offer "mileage builder sessions". That is why I was looking to repeat ASA 106. Thanks!

Re: San Juan Sailing School

I sent a link to one company that does mileage builders in a PM.
