Experience, Knowledge, Full Service
Do you want to feel safe and confident on the water? Looking for a teacher with the right certifications and experience? Want to just get out there and have fun?
Capt. Mac is fully certified and teaches all the courses himself. That means personal attention from a master sailor.
The Capt’n has over 40 years of teaching experience and logged well over 80,000 teaching miles. That’s over 700 sailing courses taught.
Capt. Mac has knowledge not only with “course content” but with everything else you need to safely handle a boat. He’s also experienced almost every situation imaginable out on the sea and passes that knowledge onto his students.
Which brings us to Kinohi, the custom-built 42′ sloop. It’s a work of master craftmanship unlike anything around today. It meets all Transport Canada & Sail Canada safety equipment regulations (including a life raft).
And support goes beyond the course. Capt. Mac is always available to help and give advice, and is reguarly helping former students with surveys of prospective boat purchases.
So that’s why Capt. Mac.
