Our school started in January of 2014 because of a passion for sailing. Captain Brad and First Mate Sherri, a husband and wife team who live aboard their own sailboat. True sailors at heart, wanted to share their knowledge and experience first hand to help educate others on how to sail safely and make the most of your sailing adventures. During our first year we had 58 students, taught 92 classes, and received many five Star ratings. We are very happy with our first year. In 2015 our goal is to exceed 2014 and introduce many more people to the joys of sailing here in sunny Key West Florida. We know that our personal attention and hands-on instruction is the best in Key West!
