Kerry Cotter, who took our ASA107 Celestial Navigation Online Class in 2022, sent the following comments:


I had a great time in the ASA 107 Celestial Navigation class. There was efficient coverage of content during each of the lectures, clear expectations for students and the course materials are all expertly designed. The Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship set their standards so high I could not possibly ask for more.

Captain Tursi is an amazing teacher. I appreciate his dedication to the needs of students and how he constantly goes above and beyond to make sure all questions are addressed. He is always prepared to provide additional support to students by providing alternative approaches to content, as needed.  Rita is amazing as always. Her organization, detailed knowledge, and follow-up with students is always on point and appreciated. Her hard work and expertise in logistics makes staying organized on the student side so much easier.  I very much appreciate Rita's care and dedication to ensuring the student experience is as streamlined as possible.  Your institution sets high standards for the student experience. I cannot think of anything else which can improve upon what is already being delivered. Thank you for all you do!

I discovered the Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship from your excellent YouTube channel. Thank you for your generosity in making those excellent videos freely available to the sailing community and beyond.  Very pleased to have discovered the Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship. I am serious about my sailing education and appreciate finding a school that sets such a high bar for its students and does not make compromises in its educational approach.

Although I hold ASA 101 and 103 certifications from other institutions, I will likely retake these classes with The Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship during the 2023 season, just to ensure I am up to par with the standards you have established.  In the meantime, I am looking forward to joining you this June for ASA 104. Thank you!
