A big THANKS to Larry for the very kind words and accompanying photos:
Can’t express my gratitude enough to Great Lakes Sailing Co. and our instructor, Keith Forton, for making the recent ASA 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising course such a fulfilling and memorable experience! Truly one of the best educational experiences I’ve ever had.
“Perception” a Hunter 38, was a luxury to sail and be aboard for our 6 days of training. You couldn’t have provided us with a better vessel. Keith is a very passionate teacher and sailor. He went above and beyond expectations and kept our interest and desire to learn throughout the entire time. Not only did we meet expectations for the course but the additional, outside of the course, material he provided and his experience as a racer was invaluable. He is very deserving the “teacher of the year award”!
Will not hesitate to return for another course or hopefully charter for a few days. Lake Michigan, Traverse Bay and the surrounding area is one of the most beautiful places to be in – couldn’t ask for better venue to learn.
Thanks again and hope to return soon.
