Customer Reviews

Nitzan was prompt, professional and a pleasure to sail with. She eagerly shared her knowledge and led us to have a great, hands-on sailing experience. We are novices so she took that into account and still managed to give us an exciting, enjoyable sailing experience in the NYC Lower Manhattan bay area. Highly recommend it!
