Re: Florida Sailing School and Vacation 2013

I liked the J-world sailing class in Newport, RI so very much several years ago that I subsequently took their racing class in Key West. It appears now from their website that a liveaboard cruising class is offered.

Go over to the "song thread" and post a few songs, you will get your post count up to 15. Then you can PM each other.

It seems that I (and probably you too) can not send PM due to the low post count.

Maybe buying a 27-30 footer and would like to charter Caribbean someday.

St Pete's seems like a good spot. I am going single-handed and don't want too

too basic of course but I could suck it up . Would like to check out snowbird

liveaboard opportunities as well.

Thanks
I just took ASA 101-104 with Simply Sailing out of St. Pete in December. Had a great time: nice boat (Hunter 36, 2006 , in great shape), one on one tuition, instructor was great. I was pretty much in the same situation as you: had quite a bit of experience sailing, but wanted ASA certification (that is pretty much mandatory now in the Med) and experience handling bigger boat. I have "challenged" ASA 101 (just took the exam, and if you been sailing for a while it's all easy) and then took ASA 103, 104, which is cruising, some navigation, mooring, well you know. Now, those 2 courses only take ~5 days, so if you want to spend 2 weeks, you can probably either add ASA 105-106 or just charter their boat for another week. PM me and I will send you contact information for my instructor: he was really nice guy, in his 60 and knows a lot about boats. Disclaimer: I have no connection with Simply Sailing, except being a satisfied customer, and I myself had a hard time finding any information regarding sailing schools in Florida (at least Mid-West part of it)

I highly recommend this outfit. I've known several to take their courses with very good success. They have a few FL locations:

Offshore Sailing School

You might also try Chapman's school of Seamanship in Stuart.
