We received this note from Geoff McClure, who with his wife Jenni, took an ASA118 Docking Course and an ASA104 Intermediate Coastal Cruising course with us in July 2014
Captain Jochen Hoffman went above and beyond expectations.
We let him know that there was a fairly large gap between my comfort/skill level
and my wife's (1st mate) so, while he did a terrific job of training all of us,
he took great care to make sure my wife was comfortable with every aspect of the
course as well. As we pursue the more advanced courses we will make a point of
scheduling our time so we have Jochen as our instructor. He is demanding of his
students, but he makes the course work both interesting and fun. It's clear he's
passionate about his craft.
