I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the sailing experience Ben and I had this weekend. First, pairing us with Joan was really an inspired choice. She is SO great with kids! Her patience, sense of humor, and genuine interest in her students really shows—as does her love of sailing! I’m not sure if it was part of your calculus, but her Navy background made her an inspired choice for me too!! We loved every minute of it, and I can’t say enough about our experience—if you ever need a testimonial or a review, I’m your man! We both learned a great deal, and she made a sailor out of Ben…his confidence soared as he successfully executed the man overboard and docking drills, but he loved heeling over and catching the wind most of all (I knew he was a sailor at heart)! It was a weekend neither of us will ever forget….thank you. 

I’ll be in touch shortly on the follow up keelboat cruise… And we’ll be back this week for some practice time!

Best regards,

 George - We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our four days with Bill. He's an excellent instructor. He was always clear in his directions and patient with us; and perhaps most important always kept a calm an upbeat atmosphere on the boat. Please thank him again for us.
