Coastal Cruising Class

This afternoon at 2:00pm, I will be in Pensacola, FL starting my Coastal Cruising class. The 6 day class is composed of 5 days living-aboard a 39' monohull sailboat and 1 day for examinations. I will be learning about tides, anchoring, navigation, and honing my sailing skills. I will be taking this class solo. The girls will be hanging out with Bill and their Aunts and I will have a learning vacation. I'm so excited! See y'all in a week!


  1. Hope you have a great time! I took the five day course at J World San Diego and it was soooo helpful. Really helped build my confidence on the boat. I was exhausted by Friday, but it wa worth it.

  2. @Red Charlotee: I will pass along your note to Val, Red Charlotte. From the notes I've received from Val via SMS, she is already having a blast. They've been sleeping on the boat, but the weather has made it tough for them to get out much. Maybe tomorrow they will be able to get some good cruising time in. Val let me know that on her first test, Navigation I believe, she scored a 95%. :) Yeah! One of us has a 95% chance of knowing where the heck we are!! :)
