Much less expensive?

From the respective websites:

Tradewinds (ASA Certifications)
Basic Keelboat - 3 days inst. (24hrs) $495=$165/day

Basic Cruising - 3 days inst. (24hrs) $595=$198/day

BK+BC Package - 6 days inst. (48hrs) $995=$166/day

Club Nautique (US Sailing Certifications)

Basic Keel 4 days inst. (32hrs) $745=$186/day

Basic Cruising 4 days inst. (32hrs) $845=$224/day

BK+BC Package 8 days inst. (64hrs) $1095=$137/day

I guess it depends on what you''re looking for during your stay in the SF Bay area. It''s a great place to sail; hope you have a chance to enjoy it.

In July I will be visiting family in the San Franciso Bay Area, but I have set aside time to schedule some sailing lessons. Does anyone have any recommendations for schools/instructors/etc? Any personal experiences to tell?

Though my husband and I sail our Cal 22 on Colorado lakes, and have chartered in the Caribbean and La Paz, I want to sign up for individual study.

Thanks for your help.
