Cat lessons in Florida  Bottom

  • Looking to refine my craft and maybe also have someone go over my boat and discuss some upgrades/rig changes. Anyone have a pro they recommend in Florida? I’m 4 hrs to Pensacola and 4 hours to Tampa/St Pete and would travel to either. Thinking a 1/2 day lesson to start
  • Get in Touch with Robbie Daniel-Red Gear Racing.

  • Where are you located? How far are you from Jacksonville?
  • I am in Tallahassee, so about 2.5 hours, 3 to the beach. in Jacksonville quite a bit for work and family
  • +1 on red gear
    Robbie trains recreational, pros and Olympians
    He is a fantastic sailor, coach and great person to hang out with and talk all things sailing

    they also offer boarding at their house for out of towners
  • Vacation this spring break on Anna Maria Island came across Ralph & Pat (father/son) renting Getaways near Tortuga Inn Beach Resort. My daughter and I sailed a couple of times with him on on his Nacra 20 Carbon semi-foiling, learned a lot! He has sailed a bit around Florida in the races. I think Ralph's, or his son's, username on this site is g-catpat.

    If you are just trying to learn the basics you might try just grabbing any old dude off the beach with a boat instead of hiring an Olympic trainer to teach you the simple stuff. I think you’d just get better bang for the buck to get the advanced advice from the advanced guy and not the easy stuff
