What Our Students Are Saying!

Just finished ASA101 course with Jason. He was a great instructor, very patient, and made sure we understood everything we were learning and doing. I would highly recommend his school to anyone interested in sailing (the right way).
Ken, 101
My wife and I have always had the passion to learn to sail, so we made the decision to move forward! We combined ASA courses 101-103 to complete in a weeks time. Not fully knowing what to expect, we were really impressed with our instructor Capt Jason. Capt Jason is very knowledgeable & made our lesson plan enjoyable while detailing the importance of the knowledge base we were absorbing. We spent the whole week on the water, understanding the safety and joys of life on the water. We are looking forward to our next 104 course! I highly recommend Capt Jason for your instruction or charter! Thanks again Jason! We look forward to the spring!
Bradley & McKenzie, ASA101/103 Combo
Sam,
Just wanted to thank you again for all of the experience and knowledge you shared with us.  our confidence is through the roof.  Susie is done at the end of the school year and I have given my notice to retire in June and we are on the path to cruising.
We had a great time last week!
Daryl and Susie, 103/4
Learned many docking and undocking maneuvers during the one-day class. I feel a bit more confident during no to moderate winds now, although I plan to practice, practice, and practice to keep the skills sharpened. Jason was a great instructor as always. I recommend the class to all new boaters and as a refresher to the experienced boater.
Charlie, ASA 118
Finished ASA 104 with Jason and cant say enough about the experience I had sailing to Bald Head island. Never forget it. THX to Myrtle Beach Sailing School. Cant wait till ASA106.!!
Chris, 104
ASA 118 (docking) and ASA 104 (bareboat) were fantastic experiences with Jason (owner and instructor) and the team at Myrtle Beach Sailing School. Their approach to education is sincere, patient, and hands-on. Our class spent time discussing the material in the books, reviewing, and asking questions; and then we were straight out onto the water for the learning-by-doing parts. I can’t say enough about how inclusive and productive the teaching style is. But, perhaps more importantly, the adventure our class had in ASA 104 while sailing from Myrtle Beach to Bald Head Island was wild! We established genuine camaraderie as we faced the serious, ever-changing, and incredibly fun realities of bareboat cruising. I have taken ASA courses at 3 different schools across the US, and Myrtle Beach Sailing School is over and above the most thorough and rewarding
Richard, ASA 104, 118
“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
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
My daughter and I took their sailing 101 class, Tyler did a fantastic job teaching us, I would highly recommend them if you are considering taking a sailing class.
Wayne, 101
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 !!
Shelly, ASA103
