  • My husband and I just completed the 5 day live aboard Cruise and Learn with Gary as our instructor. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. The boat was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The meals were well planned and you never went hungry. The course itself was a perfect mix of learning how to sail and relaxing in the sun with your fellow crew. There are shore excursions so that you can stretch your legs, and every anchorage offers spectacular views of the Pacific coast. Gary is a fantastic instructor with the perfect demeanour for teaching. He is patient, with a great sense of humour and a relaxed approach. As a result you feel comfortable and at home in your environment, even if you have never sailed before. I highly recommend that everyone reads the course materials in advance, regardless of experience. This will make your week far more enjoyable as you can concentrate on sailing and admiring the beauty and wonder of sailing, rather than focusing on an exam. For anyone who has ever wanted to learn how to sail - this is it. This is the experience you have been looking for. You will have incredible memories and a bucket list item checked off with one email to Blackfish Sailing. Do it - you will be so happy you did!
  • Gary is a great guy, knowledgeable, kind, and professional. I will be back for a training coarse Thank you Gary for the great day on the water! Even in November 👍👍
