Spring Foward Womans Sailing Race 2020 // St. Augustine Sailing Sisters // St. Augustine, Florida

This year, we had one of our best-ever Spring Foward Womens Sailing Races on the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine, Florida. Chilly weather and high winds made it a fast, exciting race. Boats tore sails, ran aground, dropped out, or reefed and kept sailing. Crew wore gloves, pfd’s and even thermal underwear for this Springtime sailing race.

CAPTAIN WORK // CHARTER BOAT TOUR // Deep Water Happy

I’m taking you on a quick tour of a new boat in the charter fleet in which I sail regularly. I’m showing you around “Far Niente,” one of our newest boats. Having just successfully docked the boat, I was, understandably, deeply in love with her bow thruster, topsides, and interior. Truly, this is one luxurious vessel above and below decks! Plus, she’s a dream to sail! Oh, and that fabulous swim platform – so convenient.

You’re about to invest a lot of money in your learning and experience, so you want to make sure you not only enjoy the process, but also get the most out of it.

Why You Should Take Sailing Classes From A Recognized School

The question of which is better – teaching yourself or taking sailing classes from a recognized sailing school comes up pretty frequently when I am teaching sailing classes.

My fast answer is that following a set curriculum ensures that you are covering all of the material. This means it is taught by a qualified instructor, and in a logical order. And there’s a lot more to it than that!
