Our instructor, Mark, was both very knowledgable and patient as he taught us the basics of sailing. I was a little nervous at first but he explained everything so thoroughly we sailed both days with confidence. Cannot wait for the next class!,

I used Pac Sail to charter a boat for Easter Weekend and the staff was excellent, the boat was in great shape and the overall experience was fantastic. I would highly recommend Pac Sail for anyone looking to charter in the Santa Cruz area.
