* I highly recommend Captain Linda, for a safe, enjoyable learning experience. She is reliable, patient, and excellent at teaching. She's also generous with her time, and enthusiastic about providing the experience of sailing, from helm to crew. She has a lifetime of experience sailing all over, and she knows boats / wind / water like the back of her hand. She has a wonderful personality for this. She even threw in a few dolphin sightings, and even the America's Cup team practice. - Jeannie I.
* Captain Linda is an awesome teacher. I have taken the ASA 101, 103 and 104 sailing certification courses from her. She is highly competent, personable and knowledgeable and VERY patient in her teaching technique. Cannot recommend her highly enough. I will definitely go back to her for future courses. She made learning fun!! -Vicki B.
