Has anyone used the Blue Water Sail School?
We used Bluewater for our first three ASA certificates. We had a great time. The experience level between the four students was very diverse. I was taking the classes simply to get certification so I could do the offshore class this year. My wife had more ability than she gives herself credit,. We had just purchased our 384 Morgan and she needed confidence on a larger boat than our 26 ft. S2. The other two were very novice with little experience. The captain adjusted the week so everyone learned something and came away with some new knowledge. Actuarially we never got off the boat for the entire week. We sailed in a flotilla with three other boats to Miami and then down the ICW. Our group opted to stay in a anchorage, Monkey point I think it was called and spend the next day practicing MOB, heaving to (while having lunch) and a lot of tacking, jibing and anchoring practice. The others went on to another anchorage and spent the night in a marina and went to dinner.
I believe they are very accommodating if they know what your wants and desires are. The other crews were equally happy with their week and experience.
