“This is the course you wish everyone could take. It makes the lake, ocean or wherever a safer, more enjoyable experience. Why punish yourself trying to learn on your own? Get a jump start…”

“I had done a fair amount of sailing by myself, but never had any formal instruction. I learned so much, and found so many gaps in my understanding. It is a wonderful class for anyone!”
