The class was great. Paul is a very competent, knowledgeable teacher who strikes the right balance between verbal instruction and hands-on experience. He taught us the fundamentals of operating the boat without overwhelming us with the jargon. It was fun, and I plan on taking another class next year.

Very comprehensive! The instructor seemed a little uncomfortable (just with public speaking) but was very friendly and knowledgeable. I’m definitely going to be signing up for additional classes.

Great hands-on learning experience! Enjoyable time spent on the water learning about the history and some of the folklore of sailing!

My class was cancelled because I was the only person signed up for it. Communication with the company was very good. Obviously I can’t properly rate this.

Thankfully it was a beautiful day and we got to enjoy time on the water. The class was small with 3 students. We rotated jobs on the sail boat and were able to experience each part for a good amount of time. Good, basic intro to sailing.

Jay was a great instructor with a wealth of knowledge. We got to talk to Will for a bit as well and he was also very friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this course!

Hands down one of the best & most unique experiences I've ever had living in New York for the last 30 years. Being on a small sailboat on the Hudson gave me a whole new perspective on how beautiful Manhattan really is. On top of that, I had never sailed before but found it super relaxing while mentally stimulating at the same time. Very meditative. I recommend this class to everyone I know.
