Staff is open and inviting to everyone. Flexible in how they approach each student. (Our class had ages 10 to 50+) The overall atmosphere is one of camaraderie and enjoyment of sailing. I got the feeling that everyone at the school is there because they enjoy sailing and enjoy teaching sailing not just because it’s their job. I’ve already booked 103/104 combo class. A big thanx to all
The class was very well organized and the instructors were awesome. I am glad that I chose South Coast Sailing to begin my sailing training. I will definitely be back to take 103/104 and continue my training beyond that. Thanks to all of the staff at South Coast Sailing for your time and support this weekend.
I was impressed with the knowledge and education of the instructors. This course is really designed for people of all ages and it does not require previous sailing experience. Great experience! In addition, the people taking the course were fantastic! I can say that in 2 days I made good friends!
Amazing classroom environment paired with an excellent hands-on experience. Can't be beat!
Capt Lori did a terrific job instructing the 101 basic keelboat class. My wife was a first time sailor so the amount of material to learn was a bit of challenge but she did pass the test! It's a lot of material to put into a 2 day course but I felt it was the right balance of class room and sail time. If your taking the class, try to complete the 4 tests in the book prior to coming to class and it will be much easier on you. Clear Skies, joesky
Excellent teaching staff, boats were in good condition, good accommodation choices and a great location in Kemah.
Absolutely friendly and knowledgeable. Felt very inviting and will be back for future classes.
Great people, very patient and knowledgeable. The study guide is very well put together and easy to follow.
Captain Damm just perfect, the Colgate 26 a great boat to learn from, equipment and boat all well maintained, professional yet relaxed atmosphere, ASA course and material well done, putting 3 to a boat facilitates learning as both skipper and crew
Class was great. Captain was AWESOME. Staff was great. I learned everything I needed to go sailing. 100% happy with all aspects of the experience.
The South Coast Sailing ASA 101 course was top notch. The classroom setup and visual aids were excellent and the instructor very knowledgeable. Very nice facilities and I enjoyed sailing the Colgate 26.
It's amazing how much you can learn about sailing within few hours with an experienced professional like Captain Jon. I am looking forward to attend the next level classes after practicing the level of knowledge gained at this ASA101 basic sailing class. Thanks again!
Knowledgeable and friendly instructor, great equipment, convenient marina.
Trip was a fantastic instructor, and the SCS staff was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Can't wait to return to SCS for the next course!
Captain Terry was great! I definitely gained confidence and skills. Thanks for a great weekend of sailing.
I attended this class with my wife and we both absolutely loved it. Our instructor did a great job of getting the material into our heads in a way that stuck and instructing us on the boat. We were provided with a textbook for the class, some yacht line to practice knots on, a sailing log book, and a nice folder to keep everything in. The boat we trained on was just the right size and was in good repair. (Just bring lots of sunscreen - you spend a lot of time on the water and it's hard to find shade!) If you want to learn how to sail, we'd definitely recommend South Coast Sailing.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, instructors and captains.
