My wife & I just returned from taking the ASA 101 & 103 courses. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. I looked for a school which I felt would be flexible in addressing my wife''s lack of experience. We choose Reef Runner (Panama City, Fla.) We made the right choice!

I could not believe how easily Pete was able to teach my wife to sail. His laid-back, no pressure manner of teaching was exactly what we were looking for. There is no doubt in my mind (or my wife''s) that she can single-hand a 28'' sailboat now. If you are worried about how your spouse (or you) will do in a structured sailing school, I highly recommend Reef Runner.

I took a local course on the panhandle of Florida as well. With very limited boating experience of any type prior to the course it was incredibly helpful. Others in the area told me to read a book and just go sail. Reading their choice of book "Sailing Fundamentals" by Gary Jobson and the classroom work with ASA made a huge difference. Anyone interested in the exact location, instructors and cost just message me.
