We received this letter from Peter Ford who completed our Norfolk to St Thomas ocean training cruise in November 2006: 

This letter is to express my appreciation of the ASA 108 voyage on KINJA from Norfolk to St Thomas under the leadership of David Appleton and Lee Tucker. This was the culmination of all my previous ASA courses with the Maryland School of Sailing, and fulfilled a long-held ambition to sail way out into the Atlantic. Not only did we do that, but experienced a whole range of new experiences: fantastic sunrises and sunsets, landing 35 pound mahi-mahi for dinner,  setting a storm anchor in earnest (i.e. not just “practice’), shooting the sun and stars and, not least, enjoying the great company of my ship mates. A wonderful experience, which leaves me feeling a good deal more confident, if not competent, when I take out the family bareboating in the future.

Once again, thank you, and congratulations on having David and Lee on your staff; They did a fantastic job, with great instruction and humor.

Best Wishes
Peter Ford.
