Re: Bareboat Cruising course with Offshore Sailing School

So there are two things wrong with my post. I took the liveaboard cruising course on captiva island, fl. With regard to location, part of it was I was meeting some friends in Bonita Springs before the class. I can't remember why we chose Captiva Island over Fort Myers, but I think they weren't offering the liveaboard course out of Fort Myers during the timeframe we were looking to take the course. That rings a bell.

Starting a new thread probably later this week to talk about my experience. In short, it was great. More detail to follow in the separate thread.

I took the course several years ago in the BVI. One of the best weks of my life.

Hey Justflie,

What made you choose the Ft. Myers location for this course over the other Florida locations? We are thinking about taking a course with Offshore Sailing and we aren't sure which location would be better....

Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

Thanks!

Bonita Bill's under the bridge to FMB has good burgers and onion rings at even better prices, Starz pizza is very good (happens to be right next to the OSS office on MacGregor Blvd).

Re: Bareboat Cruising course with Offshore Sailing School

Thanks, guys. Keep the advice coming, still have a few days before we go.

I'll write something up about the experience in a new thread when I get back.

When you get back give us a follow up. I'd like to take my wife for the class down there.

Re: Bareboat Cruising course with Offshore Sailing School

Pay attention, let things sink in, and try and get the most helm time in the worst weather.
I got lucky; right before my class was to start everyone backed out! I paid extra (not a lot) for the instructor and myself to go out for the whole week. Spent 2 days (about 12 hrs) in nasty, nasty weather. Money well spent.
I wish i had learned more about light wind sailing on a big rig.
