Sailing lessons are designed to teach the less experienced sailor or non-sailor to become comfortable behind the wheel of a larger sailboat. With just the main sail up to make the boat more manageable, students will practice different points of sail (into the wind, off the wind, reaching, and downwind) as well as coming about, gybing, and stalling the boat, all with the aim of having fun and putting sailing into perspective so that further training comes easier. Weather and time permitting, lessons end with students taken a turn at the helm with the Genoa sail up to experience the true power of the wind.


What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

Sailing Daffy provides a handful of varied experiences; any day can be a good boating day, weather dependent, from just sailing around the ocean, to cruising the New River in Fort Lauderdale, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions. Swimming, snorkeling, sailing lessons, even stopping at local eateries.. DAFFY is a 40 ft Hunter sailing sloop. The latest sailing DAFFY campaign, get married on the boat!!

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

I sold my floor covering business after 27 years and knew that I didn't really want a job. The thought that I could earn some extra money taking people out to enjoy the ocean seemed to be the best option for me.

What do you love most about your job?

I am a people person. Meeting new people, making new friends and being on the water is the perfect combination for me.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?

I had a 73 year old lady on the DAFFY sailboat; sailing was on her "bucket list" Once she got behind the wheel, she wouldn't let go for over an hour. She loved it and I loved seeing her having fun !

Customer Reviews

We had a great time learning to sail. The captain was a lot of fun and knew a great deal of Fort Lauderdale history. The boat was easy to sail and had plenty of room. We would highly recommend Sailing Daffy!!

My husband had an awsome birthday learning to sail. Captain Charlie was both engaging and entertaining. It was also great to hear fun stories about the owners of those beautiful homes on the river.

This was an awesome sailing trip! We loved it! Captain Charlie was very friendly, he taught us how to sail, told us fun stories about sailing and was a great company! We definitely will come back for more sailing in the ocean!
