6.12_Marsello_Greg_2014Rick did an outstanding job teaching & training. Mostly I appreciated his patience and sincere interest in our success. It was a challenge, but a great deal of fun. I learned what I hoped to learn and my confidence will allow me to practice and get better. Well worth the time and money.

6.12_Strauven_Catherine_and_Christop_2014I was a little apprehensive about the course, as I had no prior sailing experience, but our instructor (Amanda) immediately set my mind at ease. She was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and made our classroom and on-water sessions fun! Her enthusiasm and love of sailing was contagious, and I enjoyed every minute of my experience. Now that I’ve completed the Learn to Sail course, I can’t wait to participate in a cruising course!

6.12_Bratt_Blake_and_BobEasterly_2014Great experience! Bob Easterly is a great instructor with amazing experience, great local knowledge and a navy captain to boot! I’d sail with him anytime! Everything was at or above expectations, and demonstrates excellent operations, from boats and equipment upkeep, to how in classroom translates to on the water instruction. This course works and is 100% connected. This is really a top-notch, customer/student oriented business.

6.12_Falls_Tom_and_son_2014Bart was an absolute professional sailing instructor. He was calm and patient on the water and in the classroom. These were essential qualities for us, as a group, as we were comprised of myself and a friend and our 10 year old sons. Thanks to Bart, we all passed the test and enjoyed ourselves a lot! I was apprehensive when booking the course because I thought 3 full days of sailing instruction (or any instruction) would be challenging for my 10 year old. The reality was that we had a great time and look forward to sailing together this summer!

6.12_Gackstatter_Karen_SteveColgate_husband_Kat_2014Kat was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and patient with our many questions and occasional “block” to understanding a concept. Kat would take the time to use the boat model or white board to explain. On the water she made us feel comfortable and confident. We are anxious to get out on the water again. From Karen’s husband, Chris Gackstatter: Our experience was unique in the fact that we did the Fox News segment with Steve Colgate. Kat did not miss a beat and we never felt that our instruction was compromised. Learning with Kat was more like sailing with a friend than being a customer. We loved doing the 5-day Learn to Sail course out of NYC. We feel we can sail in any harbor in the world; and after sailing classes there was NYC to entertain us. The sales force did an excellent job in making the course happen at the Manhattan location.
