Bob Loprete, who took an ASA103 course with us in June 2013, included the following comments in his survey reply:
I'm not sure about my expectations when I signed up but I
knew what I wanted out of the course in terms of skills learned and the quality
of instructor and the fellow students. This course met that criteria beyond what
I thought could happen. Everything was top tier.
Captain McKee was an excellent instructor. We were drilled
on the necessary skill sets to the point where I could see the crew improving
daily as individual sailors and as a team regardless of which role each would
have at any given moment.
I signed up late; Rita was great in making sure I got
course materials on time and that everyone was informed on schedules and
protocol prior to the class.
I searched a number of schools on-line prior to deciding on MD School. The course duration, the boat size, the idea of staying on the boat, and the entire curriculum and staff resumes were all factors in my decision.
