Clear and engaging writing. I am a complete novice and while it took me several times to pass, it was well worth the effort and so important to know.

This works as a great refresher. I can see me coming back every few months or before chartering for my own piece of mind

I have turned into a great crew member and mate largely due to your online classes. I can now think and speak "sailing" and sailing terminology.
