What an incredible weekend!!! My husband and I decided to learn to sail and spent Saturday and Sunday doing just that. Dan was an excellent teacher!! Before Saturday, I had never even been on a sail boat and now I can SAIL one!!! I’m excited about our new adventure! Thank you Dan and Sunrise Sail!!

Heather Childers Bussey

We learned to sail with Dan from Sunrise Sail in March and have been sailing as a member of the club since. We really appreciated the one-on-one learning we received and the quality of the boats. Everything is very well maintained and the people we have met are great. We highly recommend if you would like to learn to sail!
