I and our spouses spent a glorious week in Australia (Great Barrier
Reef - Hamilton Island) earlier this year. We are really having
a blast exploring some of the world's great places to sail. And,
we have you to thank for giving us our freedom!

I just got back from our SECOND trip to the BVI. We did a flotilla
last year there, then a flotilla in the Balerics Islands of Spain
last summer. The trip we just returned from was on a 46' cat.
with 8 adults. We did it all ourselves, no flotilla. Russ, captain,
and me, first mate. We have just YOU to thank. We knew
nothing before you. Thank you so much.

Just wanted to say thank you for
the wonderful week. Deb and I really enjoyed your approach to
teaching sailing. Some instructors we have encountered are aloof
and arrogant. Not in your case! You made her very comfortable
at handling the boat. It is difficult to teach your spouse boathandling.
You moved us to the next level. We plan on chartering in the near
future with confidence and excitement. Keep up the good work.
Wonderful boat too. We'll recommend you to anyone who wants to
John and Debbie
Thanks for a great week. This is
the first time we stayed in a hotel room that came with us when
we went out sightseeing. When we first considered doing this,
we weren't sure if the same course/instructor could be right for
the whole family, from 9 year old to 49 year old. But it was.
You were incredibly patient with the 49 year olds, but didn't
slow things down to the point of boring the 9 year old. It was
a wonderful vacation.

Life is filled with many positive
experiences. The opportunity to learn sailing and seamanship from
you will always be remembered. Your love of sailing and great
people skills are great models for us to emulate.

Tenacious was more beautiful than we could
have hoped. You're a gracious host and a master of sailing. We
are lucky to have learned from you. We'll be back for Advanced

What a week of sailing with 30 knot winds and
swells to match. Your boat is beautiful and she sails well under
good and bad conditions. We can't wait to try our hand at our
own bareboat charter experience. Thanks for getting us ready.

My skills at docking and maneuvering
under power have greatly improved, as has my confidence, making
what was formally a stressful situation into something fun!

This has been the best working
vacation and we have learned a great deal about sailing. Lee made
it fun and he is a good teacher. Lee has 3 rules.....Be safe,
have fun and learn to sail. Staying on the boat was very quiet
and relaxing after a day of sailing.

It's hard to believe we just picked
you out of a magazine full of sailing advertisements. Thank you
so much for sharing your beautiful boat, your knowledge and expertise
and easygoing approach to teaching.
Luther and Susan
Thanks Lee. We truly enjoyed you
and your class.

These 3 days were wonderful. Full
of learning, work and good company! I look forward to practicing
new sailing skills and knowledge. You are a wonderfully patient
but on task teacher.
Hot Springs, South Dakota
Thanks for 3 great sailing days!
Great teacher, good company and a capable boat. We both learned
a lot, but only a small fraction of the sailing knowledge you

You are a great instructor and
we're glad to have had someone who is as passionate about sailing.
Thanks for being so patient with us.
Pamela and Sam
Thanks so much for a really great
time.....oh, and teaching us to sail too! We loved Tenacious and
all her glory. You are a fabulous teacher with a great sense of
humor. Andy and Nanci
Lydia and I wish to convey how
much we enjoyed our experience this week. Your patience while
allowing two ladies to take over your boat was amazing. We both
learned a lot and feel confident we can venture out on our own
to gain the additional experience we need.
