Comment from C. C. - a recent student in the course: “I hold a 100 ton Masters and took this class with a friend who didn’t have much experience on the water. I had a wonderful time and learned a few things to boot! Linda is a fabulous instructor who made the curriculum fun, easy and informative. If you want to practice your rusty skills or learn a whole new skill set, I recommend this class!”
