“This place is a wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming introduction to sailing - and if you're experienced, it is one a tiny handful of schools in the country that teaches all the way up to Offshore Passagemaking. The sailing club is far and away the best sailing value on the Bay. I really couldn't be happier that I have joined this community.”
“Excellent teachers and great hands on training. I attended the all female class taught by Martha...loved it.”
