There were four of us who started Ship 13 here in Bernalillo NM. We each
applied for training from U.S.Sailing, to become certified sailing
instructors. This has worked very well and U.S.Sailing is very supportive.
We also are members of the J/24 class association so the Ship is into racing
in several states. You can get information about a sailing certification by
contacting; Rebecca White, 401-683-0800 ext 631.
