This sailing program was both fun and educational. Each person had a chance to pull each line, received a clear explanation of sailing lingo and got a chance to take the helm. Fantastic.

It was empowering to take the helm and of course it’s beautiful place to sail! Nice to see our cruise ship from the water. Take sunscreen!

What a fabulous experience! All the family got to take part and learned the front (bow) from the back (stern), Jib's and Jigs. Even the teenagers enjoyed themselves without the need for wifi for once. Highly recommended.
