I personally think it a mistake for someone new to sailing to take the 103 immediately following the 101. After your 101 you should practice what you have experienced in class, the practice is key to burning in the concepts, and to making much of sailing as second-nature as it should become.Then when you go to 103, if there are things you didn't get right or forgot from 101, you have a chance to fill them in as you learn the new material. Go right into the 103 and what you dont have down after 101, you are likely to still not have down after 103.

IMHO more than 3 is a big class, and 101 on 32 a bad idea. You wont get much boat handling drill in with that big a boat. For example a common 101 drill is sailing figure 8s around a pair of floats about 100 feet apart. First tacking for awhile, then gybing, then windward/leeward. Maybe 5-600 iterations of the basics, and they become natural. 32 footer, maybe 10% of that...
