Learning at the helm in sailing school
Question: I am interested in a sea-kayaking or sailing (beginner) trip. I can travel March 18-30th, and will be traveling alone. Any info regarding any trips would be appreciated. Thank you.

You’ll learn all the sailing basics
on board a Women for Sail trip

Adventure Adviser: Take a close look at Women for Sail, a Key West-based outfitter that offers up a near boat-load (pardon the pun) of beginner-level sailing courses for women only. They’re running a five-day coastal cruising trip that leaves Key West on March 23 ($845, including all meals). You’ll learn the basics of boat handling,
navigation, skippering, and safety. Nights are spent on the boat, either in port or anchored offshore. No previous experience is necessary, and each client will get her turn at the helm (Don’t panic: The captain will be supervising). Call 800-346-6404 for details.
