Chris Weaver, who took our four-day ASA101 course in September 2018, sent the following comments
My wife and I could not be more pleased with the ASA 101
class. We felt that while the class was expensive, it was much more extensive
and prepared us much better than competing sailing schools could have done.
Captain Chip Lohman's instruction was top-notch. He made us feel comfortable
right away, he taught us very well, and was altogether professional and
friendly. We will definitely request him for our next course. We couldn't
be happier with the quality of the school and its service. Rita was very helpful
prior to the class in preparing us for what to expect. The boat was great.
I was really impressed with the professionalism throughout the class, and this
extended to the care of the boat and its systems. We chose the Maryland
School because it seemed much more professional than other schools in the area.
Tom Tursi's videos on YouTube helped come to that conclusion - please have him
do more! The Island Packet 32 was also one of the reasons we booked with your
organization. Many schools use dinghys or other small boats, but we felt the
larger boat was much more applicable to the kind of boat we would want to sail
on regularly. We commend everyone at the school for their professionalism,
friendliness, and exceptional instruction. We will not hesitate to book with you
