Just in - a lovely testimonial from one of our students this summer ... Thanks Shawn, we are thrilled you had a great time. #LiveLoveSail #Sail4life #LearnToSail

"I took the live aboard basic cruising course this year with Advantage Boating. The experience was outstanding, our instructor, Nick was professional but personable. His confidence was evident and his willingness to readjust as students needed was an essential part for the success of the course. I highly recommend the course and specifically the live aboard. The experience on the meticulously clean boat was awesome, from cooking aboard, swimming and exploring the different anchorages along the way. #bestever #advantageboating #sailingisthebest "
