As a beginning sailor with limited experience, this course was thorough and well constructed with a combination of both theory and hands-on training. I am better prepared to safely operate a sailboat in the conditions that I am likely to encounter.  It also gave me a better understanding of what areas I need to work on to become a competent, capable and confident sailor.  Victor is a great teacher who has a tremendous passion for sailing.  I would recommend this course to anyone that interested in getting involved in sailing or that would like to learn the proper ways to sail.

Love Tiller & Kites for the help with the Melges and getting it ready for a road trip back to Michigan for some racing this last summer. Victor and Bruce are super helpful and make great repairs and enhancements to the boat. Also helped sell the Holder recently. Thanks Tiller & Kites and we are glad to have you close by.

My wife & I chose the Tiller And Kites dinghy course mainly because it is IYT-accredited and recognized globally. The course was great and we've since become Tumbleweed members sailing every month. Victor is a great teacher and got us sailing in no time!
