My daughter is 16 and she has been sailing on Hobie cat 16 every summer in France. We are arriving on Newport Beach in June and I am looking for enrolling her on a one week camp, if that exists in the US?
This was posted earlier today. May be worth looking into.

Check with them, as they have a beginner/novice thing they do in the summer. Not the same as Rick's classes for sure, but I bet you come away with alot of good information/experience."
