Captain Todd is an excellent instructor, in my opinion. He provides in depth explanations and analysis of sailing fundamentals and operations of sailing vessels and encourages hands on learning from his students. His calm demeanor exemplifies a true professional sailor, and I would be happy to recommend him to other prospective sailing students in my area.
