What Our Students Are Saying!

Jason, you rock! Thanks, I had a blast! Never imagined that getting certified comes with so much great sailing and so much fun!
Sergie, ASA103
Hey Jason, thanks again! Your professionalism, confidence, and sailing knowledge made for a fantastic learning experience for me. You made ASA 101 a breeze and I can’t wait for my ASA 103 date to finally get here! You make learning fun.
John, ASA101
My son Ben Lovell and I took the American Sailing Association 101 course with Jason in early November and had a blast! As an instructor, Jason made sure we understand the content and felt comfortable with the skills we had to demonstrate. He was always patient when we didn’t grasp something and was willing to model and repeat as many times as necessary. As a Captain, Jason was extremely knowledgeable of the area and very skilled as a sailor. From our initial meeting, we realized we were in competent hands. Maybe even more important than learning skills, Ben and I developed an itch – perhaps even a passion – to learn more about the exciting world of sailing. We plan to take the ASA 103 course, and our preferred Captain will be Jason Cox with Myrtle Beach Sailing School.
Joe, ASA101
I had a great time at Myrtle Beach Sailing School. Jason is a great teacher and he really makes an effort to provide as much instruction as possible during his courses.
Jeff, ASA104
Jason is a great guy and was very patient with us. He made it a great time and the material easy to understand. I hope to go back and take some more advanced classes with him.
Jason, ASA101
“Captain Jason is a Great Instructor” My wife and I took ASA 101 and 103 from Jason. We found Jason to be an excellent instructor. We flew from Montana to Myrtle Beach to take sailing instruction from him. We could not have asked for a more patient or knowledgeable instructor than Jason. I highly recommend him to any person interested in learning how to sail. We anchored out one night and the sunset was spectacular.
Bruce, ASA101/103
MB Sailing School and Jason were a wonderful experience, the boat was a very nice 30 something footer and the Skipper is extremely knowledgeable and quite a teacher. Was my first experience on a sailing vessel but thanks to Jason it won’t be my last!! Great experience and highly recommend.
Andy, ASA101
John and I took our ASA 103 sailing class this weekend – and passed !!! We can’t say enough about our amazing instructor – his knowledge and love for sailing is contagious. Anyone that wants to or has ever thought about sailing should contact Jason Cox and his Myrtle Beach Sailing School. Ask him about the hammock and Sebastian !!
