After 30 years of bareboat chartering, in retirement we decided to buy the boat and live half a year at sea. We also decided to finish up our ASA course work, to polish up on our sailing skills and loose some of the bad habits we had acquired. The Island Dreamer folks provided a great 5 day learning experience, based on the course requirements but geared to meet our needs. While the boat is not glitzy, it is very comfortable, and a solid and forgiving platform great for sharpening your sailing skills. The company and conversation was great- the food and service super. You can pay a lot more and not receive the same level of liveaboard experience.
