  • "Jennifer was able to teach sailing both to my wife, who has never sailed before, and to me, who has a 30-year sailing resume.  I took the course with my wife so that I would know what she knew.  What I found is that in the end, I was taking the course for myself.  Jennifer’s depth of knowledge and practical experience was a great help to me in dusting off my somewhat rusty sailing skills.  She was able to explain things in clear, concise, terms that were simple enough to be understandable, and yet comprehensive enough to leave one with a sense of confidence and competence."  July 2010, Thomas S. 
  • "The knowledge I gained from your course gave me confidence over the summer  up in the Apostle islands (Lake Superior) in handling the boat on my own and bringing others out to enjoy it too.  My husband and I also did a trip across to Canada in winds of 35 – 40 knots, seas of 8 – 10 feet.  I had no fears, just enjoyed the luxury of having the wind at our beam instead of beating into it."  December 2010, Kathie J.
  • " I would like to thank you for let me charter your beautiful sailing boat Sunday Morning.  My family and I enjoyed the 2 days in the Biscayne bay at the most, I lived in another world, away from everything.  When I came back it seemed that 1 month was gone.  You two have been fantastic and very helpfull, I appreciate the time that you spent to go throught every detail in the boat.  Your assistance while leaving and coming back to the dock was precious and unvaluable to me....The service that you provide is to my view very professional and business oriented in term of organization and service to the customer.  Your work and your beautiful Boat exceeded my expectation.  Nothing was missing onboard. I just needed to bring my provision and ... sail.  Sunday morning is truly amazing. She blew me away with her behaviour.   She knows how to sail. My Godness if she knows.   20 knots of winds and 7.1 knots SOG ... only with the Genoa.  It was like dancing. If you drive her in the right way, she will follow you amazingly.  I already miss her."  October 2010,  Andrea F. 
  • "There were many remarkable things about our experience with Capt. Jennifer.  Most amazing was her ability to guide and teach each one of us at every moment, given our different levels of experience and ways of learning.  She constantly anticipated each person’s “need to know,” vulnerabilities, and potential.  She strengthened each individual and simultaneously built a great team.  And she’s a great cook and cabin mate too!"  February 2010,  Mary B.J.

  • "Jennifer Wirth is an extraordinary teacher.  Her undergraduate degree was in Physics, so she brings that knowledge to the process-and her quiet manner and respectful approach to teaching.  She is a great teacher and I know one when I see one..."..."Thank you for being a great teacher!  It was a pleasure to learn from you-and travel with you..."  March 2007, Dr . Kent A.L.

  • "My 'learing adventure' was excellent due to the friendly expertise of Jennifer Wirth, instructor and the comraderie of the three other younger women from Calif., who were students on the 35'sailboat.  I highly recommend that you hire Jennifer often, especially when you have both senior citizen and much younger customers on board.  Her customer service skills and patience explaining a concept repeatedly, are unmatchedby any learning experience I have had, both in the classroom and in the workplace..."  May 2004, Charlotte C.

  • "My goals were to get experience on a larger cruising boat so that I would feel comfortable chartering a boat in the future, and to have a peaceful mini-vacation with my wife away from the kids (who were with Grandma) while we had fun learning to handle the bigger boat in the beautiful FL Keys.  Mission accomplished!  The boat was a joy to sail, very convenient rigging, etc.  Lots of real-world experience in real-life situcations anchoring, docking, fueling, sailing.  By the end felt quite comfortable double-handing the boat with my wife (though I found 1 extra adult, while no a necessity, is very handy!) and even got to practice the coastal nav skills..."  May 2003, Eric M.
  • "Overall our expectations were met.  I would charter again, particularly if Jennifer was available. She added a lot of value to the experience...quite professional."  January 2004, Greg D.
  • "Patti had it in mind that we should go on one of those cruises with Gofer and Capt. Stubbings.  She had been after me for years, but I could not bring myself to do that.  I can't stand staying in a hotel and floating around in one didn't seem all that appealing to me.  When I presented this trip to her I didn't really know what to expect, and honestly for a while I could tell she was having issues.  She was also nervous about things.  This is why I can't thank you enough, whe was able to relax and we both had a great time.  I hope i am able to continue sailing.  I have always loved the ocean, and get out on the water as much as possible.  But even if I can't at least we did this..."  November 2002, John H.
  • "The main reason for our classes was to make sure that my wife was comfortable with a bigger boat and could handle the basics of skippering and crewing on it...The next day with Jennifer was enjoyable going through techniques and man overboard drills.  This gave my wife a new insight into this disaster, that youjust don't throw me a beer and say goodbye!!!..."  August 2002, Mike and Rhea D.
  • "Jenn picked some succlent steaks & we feasted like royalty...If I could, I would schedule a cruise with an exp. captain such as Jenn, do allot of nanuevering, navigation, & compare styles, techniques, etc. because one of sailing's challenges is navigating a course then sailing it esp. where your point of sail doesn't necessarily go with available searoom."  July 2002, Chris H.
