My personal comment and commitment to you

Captain Davis Jones has a UDCG 50-ton Masters License with a sailing endorsement and is a certified instructor with the National Safe Boating Council. He is co-owner and captain of Shardana Sailing Charters, which runs custom charters from half-day to a week on the Chesapeake Bay on "Shardana", a 42' Catalina sailboat. He started sailing in 1991 as a volunteer leader with a new Sea Scout Ship which began a life-long journey leading to professional credentials and boat ownership. Along the way, he has served in all leadership positions in Sea Scout Ship 1942 (one of the 5 “Flagship” units in the U.S.), including 5 years as “Skipper.” In addition to sailing Shardana all over the Chesapeake Bay, Davis delivers boats along the east coast and has bareboat chartered throughout the Caribbean.

Practical Competence of Skipper Rank
Davis has a wealth of knowledge and experience, coupled with a very effective teaching style. I've had the opportunity to see him work with Sea Scouts, teen boys & girls, where his soft but firm approach brings out the very best in his students. Watching Davis check my teen son's navigation plan was remarkable. Very highly recommended.
