Re: Space Coast Florida, Private Instruction?

call Lake Fairview Marina and ask for their instructor. They are in Orlando but he is on the coast. I want to say his name is Steve. First class guy, if he can't do it, he knows a couple guys who instruct out of Cocoa.

I took lessons with him last year for my ASA 101. Very knowledgeable and excellent sailor. He has a 40 footer of his own so he is use to the local waters.

If you want a link to a good surveyor, let me know, I used a guy that did 3 different boats for me and did a pretty good job on them all.

CaptBilly,

It sounds like we should talk. You are highly recommended here on Sailnet. I will send you a private message.

That looks about right, it's been a while since I saw it last. I do remember liking what I saw though, even if it was a project

Stop by if you're in the area on the weekend and say hey.....would love to share a coldie with fellow 'netters.
I think we almost hit your boat docking during our class

Just kidding... We did end up docking next to his project for a while though. I can't remember, what is it again?

I like Harbortown, if it wasn't so far from us (Indialantic), we'd leave our boat there. I like the food there, too and the contractor list has become my goto guide for people in the area

I just took my ASA 101 class last weekend at Beachside Sailing with Captain Billy and had a great time! I joined their sailing club to get some practice and they host races on Thursday nights. Very friendly group! I can PM his contact information to you if you're interested.

Re: Space Coast Florida, Private Instruction?

They actually have two instructors and we were fortunate enough to have both at some point or another. They were both really friendly and helpful, they gave us enough space to figure things out on our own, and they were really laid back. I put that last bit in there because my wife kept accidentally jibing and he didn't get frustrated by it

I really enjoyed my time with them and would consider doing a few more courses with them, but I would probably be doing them solo unless I found someone else to do it with. That said, if you decide to do the Coastal Cruising course, let me know, I may be willing to go with you as well.

Their boats are in good shape, we did our 101 class in a Hunter 23 which is a bit tender, but was good to learn on. I think they do the next few stages on their Oday 30, which I have not seen. Be sure to ask him about his project boat as well
