Passage Making & Navigation Course Testimonials

6.17_Flynn_Jane_and_Tom_2014Excellent program and facilities. My wife and I enjoyed the entire Fast Track to Coastal Passage Making experience. It was challenging and exciting to acquire new sailing skills through hands-on experience in the classroom and on the passage. As an experienced sailor, watching my wife develop her sailing skill and confidence made for a great outcome. Thanks for helping us to sail as a couple. Looking forward to Celestial Navigation and Offshore Passagemaking courses in future. His wife Jane wrote: With Mark & Bart’s assistance, my confidence soared and I now feel very comfortable with my sailing skills. I have shared with my friends that the experience was one of the most personally challenging, thrilling and fulfilling educational experiences of my life. Now I am able to confidently and competently practice my sailing skills and share my husband’s love of sailing. For me, it brings to mind a timeless quote by Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Offshore Sailing School has given me the skill and confidence to do just that. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

6.17_Mayo_Jacques_2013Both Kevin and Mike were excellent instructors. They let the students try many new things by themselves that increased our confidence level. They were very patient and reassuring. We had a tough passage from Miami to Captiva via Key West in bad weather. The sailing was difficult, and the learning experience was outstanding.

Mark was supportive and enthusiastic. He helped me to improve existing skills and taught me new skills. This was a fabulous learning vacation experience which taught me more about sailing and myself.

Great course. More work than the other courses I have taken, but more rewarding too. The instructors were excellent, they make the course. Jeff Warner’s knowledge of astronomy is a huge bonus, adding tremendously to the value of the course. Will Baird’s knowledge is unsurpassed and his easy going instruction conveys information in an enjoyable way. Overall, this course was a great experience. Also, Jeff and Will looked sharp and were professionally dressed at all times.
