Some ASA courses out of Charleston SC
Hi all. Down in beautiful Charleston SC at the City Marina. We're staying on a 38 cat and really roughing it. :) The only thing I don't have is TV and I'm supposed to get that tomorrow. Clear skies, 10-15kt winds and around 65 or so yesterday on the harbor.

The admiral and I are getting schooled in ASA 101, 103, 104, 105 and 114 over the ten or 11 days we're here.

I've been out with Capt Will before at the Charleston Sailing School here and would like to give a shout out for him and his fine staff. I'll update this for those who haven't had the courses over the next week. We have a gal from DC down for a couple of the courses and another from fine Charlotte NC. Both are very nice and both bankers.

We were out in a 25 Catalina yesterday and we'll be back out today for testing. Didn't realize DST was already here but I'm up real early anyway as the Admiral gets her sleep.

We're supposed to sail a 44 Bavaria some as well as the Robertson and Caine 38 cat with a couple of overnights down near the Edisto River. Temps are supposed to get into the 70s and winds should remain 10-15kts during the day.

Hope you all have a great day and be safe while having fun.

Well it was brutally cold a few days on the water but we enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot. Overall the experience was great and I'd not hesitate to use the school again.

Sounds like a good time. I really like the Charleston City Marina. I stayed a few days there last fall on my way up to the Chesapeake. Hope you get some good weather!
