My approach to sailing education is very simple. I am thoroughly in love with the sport and want to share it with as many people as possible.
Juice up your Sailing Certificate. Take an online sailing course from NauticEd and get professional practical sailing instruction from Dan Mason
Feedback from Previous Students
I've enjoyed multiple lessons with Captain Dan and recommend him unequivocally. Not only is he a fantastic sailing instructor with a laid-back style that will keep you always at ease, he is also a friendly, entertaining, down-to-earth guy who absolutely loves to turn people on to sailing. His first-mate Melissa is equally charming and a fantastic host. You will enjoy every minute! Dan and Melissa's yacht, Gitana, is a well-kept classic Cherubini-designed Hunter 37 that is very fun and comfortable to sail. Improtantly, it has all the modern navigational electronics you want.
Captain Dan is awesome. Very professional yet friendly and fun. He is a natural teacher who is thorough and clear, and fills the lessons with a great sense of humor. He never appeared to be stressed about my ability with his boat, which gave me great confidence. His boat, the Gitana, is an older Hunter, but well-maintained and very comfortable. I look forward to sailing with Captain Dan again!
Dan is an amazing instructor. I would totally recommend him to anyone wanting to learn about sailing.
