stayks Great, thanks Any recommendations for any particular sailing school to choose? There are so many of them here in the UK and they all claim to be the best in the business...

Agree with SD (as usual) about modern rigs.

What organization are you looking at to get certification?

sailingdog Unless you're looking to buy/own a gaff-rigged yacht...go with a modern sloop design, since the majority of boats you'll be sailing on have this sail plan. Most of the boats you can charter also have a sloop rig.
