  • If I may, I found you to be calm and patient, very hands off while carefully in charge. We all had the utmost confidence in you, this allowed us all to push our envelope, that's what school is for. – A. Berardelli
  • In particular I appreciate the way you let people learn through hands-on experience. I have recommended VIMA to my friends and colleagues. I can't think of a better way, or a better location, in which to learn how to sail. – D. Bird
