Mark M by e-mail August 2012

I just wanted to say that I thought you ran our August course very well. Your teaching style was very conducive to through learning. The methodical approach you used helped me (and I think most others) learn at the right pace. I also had a lot of fun and met some good people.

Anna Markiewicz by e-mail July 2012

A big thank you to all of the instructors, and especially you and Andrea, for all of the guidance (and patience) during our two weekends together. Not only are you great teachers, but your passion for sailing is apparent and infectious.

Bruno by E-mail May 2013

Thanks again for Saturday’s sailing lesson. My daughter and I had a great time! You were definitely able to tailor your instruction delivery with my skill level, while keeping it interesting (without being scary) for my 5 years old. She’s been asking to go again this week! I will definitely recommend your sailing school to family and friends and look forward to my next lesson!

Boanne by E-mail June 2013

Coming into the class with next to no knowledge of sailing or its terminology – I definitely learned a great deal and your enthusiasm and love for the sport is contiguous. Huge thanks to both you and Andrea for your patience, encouragement and friendly coaching. I look forward to CANSail 2.
