    I had the opportunity and pleasure to meet Capt. Greg and join this trip last summer. At the time I was interested in learning about sailing – whether I even liked it or not, and if yes then as much as I possibly could in a short time. It turned out that from the first time on the boat I realized that I was quite enthralled with this new found interest, and after a few short sorties in the Bay I decided to join the 7-Day Cruise & Learn trip. I found Greg, as well as all of the people I met related to sailing during that time, to be supremely amicable and supportive towards me and also each other. As a total beginner I occasionally found myself in situations of stress and/or confusion, however, I cannot say that at any time there was any concern in my mind that the safety or educational integrity of our activities were in question, and this is of course thanks to the expertise of the instructors and condition the equipment. I was able to complete the three ISPA levels (it is a lot of work.. and a lot of fun!) and am certainly considering the possibility to return to Thunder Bay to sail with Greg and his team again, highly recommended. Thank you very much!
