There are so many sailing rental and sailing charter experiences available that it's hard to choose which one to go with. Consider these facts:
*90 percent of Americans live less than an hour from a navigable body of water.
*Some half-day boating charters can be as little as $500 while vacation destination charters can be under $2000 per person. (Some charters include a cook and crew while others do not.)
If you charter a boat and learn to sail in a place like New York or Florida, you can then use that knowledge closer to home by renting a boat on a lake or other large body of water. Some sailing schools like Offshore Sailing School offer vacation sailing excursions whereby you can learn to sail and enjoy other vacation features like swimming, hiking and waterside meals. Then, you might be ready to charter your own boat for a family vacation. If you build your knowledge of sailing slowly through sailing rental options, then you can invest more slowly in the sport.
