Welcome to sailing season 2021everyone!

 May your dreams and plans for the 2021sailing season come true.

I want to thank you all for your support and the privilege of being able to share the knowledge and resources I have. 2021was a great year for me. I met many interesting and motivated people with the common goal willing to  become competent and safe sailors.

This is the time of the year when one takes stock and makes plans for the year ahead. Plan ahead and avoid disappointment later. I am making plans  too and hope you can take advantage of some of them.

You can purchase Introduction to Sailing or Cruise & Learn or just a gift certificate for any of my products.

Competent Crew - Day Skipper Ashore:   Materials and more information available soon.

 The shore based portion of the ISPA Competent Crew Sail and ISPA Day Skipper Sail course will be in the home study format. Venue and date for a seminar like meeting before getting on the water will be announced when the workbooks are picked up.  This course is great for all new sailors or those wanting to get their certificates.   It consists of a two hour session, designed  to introduce sailing,  to people who are new to cruising, and may want to find answers to "questions you always wanted to know but never dared to ask". If you decide to stay with us, you will be introduced to  some of the forbidding sounding vocabulary and other information, that will prepare you to step on board and enjoy your  practical lessons on the water.  
The dates are available to be booked during June, July, and August.
