James was an amazing instructor, he has the ability to teach to anyone’s standard and capabilities. He demonstrates and trusts in your ability to learn. James helped me to feel safe at all times as well as trust in my own capabilities. I would and do recommend him to any one interested in learning how to sail or advancing their skills and knowledge. James thank you you are the best!

I feel incredibly lucky to have had James Kell as our instructor. Not only did we gain a “boat load” of confidence sailing with James, but we had an incredible time getting our certifications with his company Sailing Virgins.

Both Jack and James are incredible instructors. They both possess elevated levels of knowledge, competency, and patience to facilitate the learning process around sailing. The energy they bring to the courses they offer is something that I had never experienced before and I truly believe that it single handedly convinced me that sailing is something I want to invest both my time and money into for many years to come. It was an honor to spend 7 day on Libertas and learn how to sail her around Martinique. I would recommend Sailing Virgins and their instructors to anyone.
