Guaranteed Practical Competency

We really want you to have the skills - we know that you do too.  And we have high standards - actually, the highest standards.

That's why our policy is that until we can absolutely, positively, check off on your practical abilities according to the ANSI sailing training and assessment standards (we hope that happens the first time), you can keep coming back for additional practical instruction, on the water, at no additional charge. 

Here's what this guarantee means:  when you get the certification, it'll be because you've shown us you that you have the knowledge, you can apply it on the water, and you can really sail the boat!
