What Students are saying....

"Your kind, thoughtful, and 'great fun' manner of teaching allowed me to immediately feel at ease while never once thinking any question I posed was something other than legit. Thank-you, you are a wonderful Sailing ambassador.


Having been honoured to share some instructional time on two separate occasions with Ellen, I have to say she is undoubtedly one of the most kind, patient and knowledgeable individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. Her genuine love for sailing is, not only blatantly obvious when first you meet, but incredibly infectious as well.


Students grow in Ellen's rich atmosphere of knowledge and vitality. Her manner of instruction unfolds with such grace, kindness and gentleness that by course end you suddenly realize you've incorporated a vast amount of knowledge, effortlessly. But make no mistake, even though the student is often blissfully unaware, Ellen's primary goal and emphasis is your learning success."
