I am enrolled in the Oct 18th program. I am interested in making contact with any other participants.

HI. We are Debbie and Andy from St. Louis. We are also attending the Oct 18 program. We were pleased to find out that this program is targeted toward those who have had some sailing experience. We have sailed different kinds of boats, including this Colgate 26. It will be good to have a refresher course. This will be our first Road Scholar program as participants, but we have volunteered as instructors on other programs.

I have not sailed in a while. Most of my experience has been with small boats-hobies, etc. I was told that not sailing experience was needed for this course and I am looking forward to some nice time on the bay. I will be coming from my winter home in Singer Island, on the east coast of Florida.

Claudia for a first timer this sailing program I'm sure you
Roman Kierzek Mar 23, 2015 at 09:02 PM

will enjoy. It's a friendly and safe atmosphere. Been there and done that twice. Go for it and have fun. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Have done this before and the boats (colgates) used are wonderful to sail on.

I am also first timer for sailing. Have been reading the three books suggested. There is a tremendous amount of new knowledge for me. Looking forward to this adventure.
Roman Kierzek Mar 26, 2015 at 11:35 PM

Holy, three books. I would recommend only one that gives you the basics such as the US Sailing. Don't be too concerned about understanding it all as you will have plenty of instruction there in class and on the boat. It's when you're on the boat where you'll actually learn by doing, like everything else. Have fun!
