Re: Hello from New Jersey

Tangent, you're in a great location. Easy access to the river or the bays/ocean. Where will you be taking the class?

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Jim, the school I plan to sign up with is called New Jersey Sailing School at Brick, NJ. I found it on ASA's website.

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Cool. I went to Barnegat Bay Sailing School in Bayville. Great folks.

I now have a small boat on Barnegat Bay and also crew on a couple race boats, one on Barnegat and another on the Delaware River, up in Burlington. Sailing is awesome, and (although I have nothing to compare it to, directly) NJ isn't a bad place to learn. Except when the bay freezes and the river fills with ice and it snows every day.

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Thanks, chip. I looked up Barnegat Bay Sailing School and found it to be a better place, the bay area is much wider. I will call them tomorrow.

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Given your location, have you considered Liberty Sailing School too? I'm not trying to talk you out of any of the others, and I have no affiliation with any of the schools. Just thinking that it would be more convenient to drive to Philly versus driving to Brick. I wonder if Winter's Sailing Center doesn't have classes, too.

Anyway...welcome aboard!

Yeah, me neither. I'm sure they're all fine schools.

Re: Hello from New Jersey

I am glad you guys care enough to offer me suggestions. I may be a newbie to boating but not newbie to living :-) I think I can handle these choices. Thanks.
