  3. Lessons are cancelled if the conditions are deemed unsafe by HRCS. Examples of these conditions are imminent lightning/thunder that will hit our sailing area and winds sustained at 20 knots with gusts above that speed. Rain, cloudiness, and uncomfortable temperatures do not constitute unsafe conditions unless deemed so by an HRCS representative - dress appropriately!

The class was great. Paul is a very competent, knowledgeable teacher who strikes the right balance between verbal instruction and hands-on experience. He taught us the fundamentals of operating the boat without overwhelming us with the jargon. It was fun, and I plan on taking another class next year.

Very comprehensive! The instructor seemed a little uncomfortable (just with public speaking) but was very friendly and knowledgeable. I’m definitely going to be signing up for additional classes.

My class was cancelled because I was the only person signed up for it. Communication with the company was very good. Obviously I can’t properly rate this.
