My personal comment and commitment to you

There is a rush that comes from going sailing that you never get over. The feeling is one of freedom, adventure and enthusiasm...that was the feeling I had over 30 years ago and it has never waned! I take that same passion to my current and future students. I absolutely love the idea of sharing this Great Sport with as many people as I possibly can, as you will witness, sailing with me! I guarantee you'll come away with certain knowledge that sailing will be an endeavor you can enjoy and be confident in! Got a dream of sailing the Florida Keys or the Caribbean? How about Europe? Then let's have a Conversation! Have a question? Don't hesitate to call or text me directly @ 320.223.8382 Welcome Aboard!! Cheers!!

Juice up your Sailing Certificate. Take an online sailing course from NauticEd and get professional practical sailing instruction from Capt. Gregg Thompson.

Captain Gregg has the unique ability to take a challenging subject and make it entertaining, easy and fun to learn. He is overall a super guy, not just an excellent sailor and Captain. I would recommend him without reservation. Thank you Captain Gregg!!

Really enjoyed the time with Greg! He is really thorough in his teaching and provides complex information in ways that is easy to understand and remember. Some people have the ability to make this sort of training fun, and Greg does this very well. th

Captain Gregg was extremely professional and friendly from the very first moment. He has a deep knowledge of everything related to sailing, the area, the boat, the maps, etc, etc. He took the time to explain everything in detail, several times if needed, but also gave us the confidence to perform the tasks ourselves. We felt very secure and in good hands all the time. We would recommend him to anyone and we will sail with him again for sure. It was a great experience . Thank you Gregg!

Captain Gregg instructed my husband, my three teenage boys, and me. Wow! Very direct and comprehensive. Did an excellent job differentiating the instruction to meet the needs of each of our learning styles and ability levels. Great sense of humor. We had a so much fun and also learned how to sail and crew.

Greg was the ideal instructor. He was good natured and calm. He kept us smiling and laughing (and learning) the entire trip.

Gregg was a consummate captain and instructor, challenging us while letting us make decisions. Very informative about the area and conditions, we knew what to expect and when mother nature surprised us we responded with confidence and calmness. Overall great experience that we would recommend to anyone who is serious about sailing.
