My husband, Dave, and I are new to sailing. We are excited about learning to sail but know there is skill and knowledge required to do it safely. We are looking forward to being safe and to having fun on the water. My husband has prior sailing experience, although it was years ago, while I have none. Scott adjusted his lesson as needed to help Dave move ahead with his experience, and for me to begin learning the basics. As it was my birthday, Scott had thought to bring small chocolate cakes to celebrate. He was easy-going and friendly, so it felt like we were out sailing with a very knowledgeable friend. After a bit we stopped in the sun and just enjoyed the wind and water, and then back to skimming across the water and learning the sails. In areas where we had higher interest, Scott gave more detail. He never pushed information but modified it to our interest level and our ability to absorb it. We can’t wait to go out with him again and to learning more.
