If you want to learn to sail with a focus on cruising, Black Rock is the place for you. They have taken me from basic keel boat through bareboat, navigation, and catamarans. I've learned a ton, and had a ton of fun doing it.
I've been sailing for several years, but this greatly improved my confidence in my own abilities and allowed me to work on some techniques that I wasn't familiar with. I'd recommend the program to anyone who wants to learn to sail or to brush up on skills.
The instructor we had was fantastic and was able to add analogies to situations, which greatly sped up my understanding of wind and the general aspect of sailing. VERY much looking forward to Phase 2 in the Caribbean!
Lots of personal experience and wisdom also shared. Took ASA 101, 103, 104 & 114 this summer and every experience was awesome! I walked away with great confidence in my sailing.
If you are considering taking some sailing instruction do yourself a favor and just sign up with Black Rock Sailing. They are friendly, the location is excellent and they have some outstanding equipment to learn on. The knowledge and experience that you will gain from the instructors is well worth it. ASA 101. Will be returning for ASA 103 and ASA104.
