Confidence is a huge part of mastering a new skill. Being taught by a skillful teacher helps you get there a lot faster! An afternoon of training by Brent on my Hobie 16 has helped me quickly get sailing. I could skip many frustrating hours of uncertainty, and start enjoying it! I can highly recommend Brent for his knowledge, patience and likable manner. He also facilitated taking my kids for their first sailing session, which I hope will instill a life-long love of this wonderful sport. Thanks Brent!
