Comment: Bruce was a one of the best sailing instructors I have ever had. He is a great communicator and knows how to properly "teach" sailing to students. I say that because I have had instruction for qualified sailors, but they did not have the "teaching skills" necessary to get important points across. Bruce has a very detail oriented nature so of course the boats were in "OCD" perfect condition which made the me feel very comfortable from a safety perspective. The entire NauticEd team was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend Bruce as a sailing instructor for beginning to advanced sailing. - Chris W.

Comment: I would recommend Bruce to anyone seeking training or certification. Bruce, is not just vastly experienced, he is patient and a great teacher able to give clear instructions and constructive advice when needed. He was able to intelligently respond to my every curiosity about sailing, boat maintenance and even the culture surrounding the sport. Bruce’s boat is absolutely immaculate, a further indication of his passion for sailing.

Comment: Sailing with Bruce was an incredible learning experience. He is so patient and made sure we spent more time on things I needed help with. Bruce worked around my schedule to make meeting up very easy. The work he did with my building and then polishing my maneuvering under power skills helped make me really competent and confident moving a large boat around in tight quarters. When I went to the BVI and took a class to earn my Catamaran Endorsement, my instructor there got very excited about my skills and told everyone else in the class to come watch how I maneuvered a 39ft catamaran to a dock. I was beaming with pride, and know that all the kudos go to Bruce for being a great teacher. I highly recommend choosing Bruce as a sailing instructor.

Comment: Bruce far exceeded my expectations as an instructer. It's clear that Bruce not only has a true passion for sailing, but also a love of sharing his knowledge with others. Bruce was patient and took the time to really explain things in an easy to understand manner. I never felt like I was "on the clock". In fact, Bruce went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable captaining my own boat. I would recommend Bruce to anyone just getting into sailing or looking to refresh their skills.

Comment: Landfall Sailing is great! They have amazing boats and Bruce the instructor is even better. He has you go through the online course material on you own and then covers it with you again on the boat. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone from beginners to even more experience sailors.

Comment: I got to sail with Bruce to help"knock off some of the rust" before a BVI Charter. He did a great job assessing where I was. We were able to focus on what needed attention. He did an excellent job! His passion for sailing is evident and boat is top notch. Highly recommend.
