“Captain Yoda; I am already sad that the week is over. I wish I could sail under your tutelage for a month at least! It was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank you for your commitment to a positive learning environment, devotion to developing new sailors, your never ending energy (?!) and the sharing of your passion with a greenhorn like myself. Until anon, DM”
