Testimonial

"Just a quick note to express my gratitude for the wonderful sailing lessons I took at your facility this summer. My instructor was very skilled, informative, safety oriented and pleasant. I laughed like a kid and enjoyed the "righting" drills the most. It definitely increased my confidence. I hope to get back down there soon and practice my skills."
