What Our Students Are Saying!

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
My wife and I just completed the combined ASA 101/103 courses. We both were new to sailing. Jason was our instructor, and we had a fantastic experience. Jason was very professional and knowledgeable and also extremely fun. We really enjoyed ourselves and can’t believe how much we learned. We intend to continue sailing and will take additional ASA courses. We strongly recommend he Myrtle Beach Sailing School!
Charlie & Connie, ASA101/3
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
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
We just completed our week long live-aboard sailing lesson. We couldn’t be happier. We went from ‘never being on a sailboat’ to getting ASA 101 & 103 certified in just 6 days. Captain Jason was a great guide.
Stephanie & Ron, 101/103
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
I really appreciated Jason and the Myrtle Beach Sailing School (MBSS). Although I have many years experience, my goal was looking to receive more formal training with emphasis related to Sail Trim and Boat Handling in tight situations around docks and other structures.

Jason and the MBSS went above and beyond my expectations. Jason was thorough and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of sail trim and boat handling. He made the experience fun, entertaining, and enlightening. I feel I met my goal with the added benefit of sailing on the open ocean in some vigorous conditions.

The boats we stayed on were clean and comfortable and provided good insight into what it is like to live aboard (few days) a sailboat. Any issues that arose were quickly remedied and made our stay fun!

Thanks Jason, look forward to a another outing!
David, 103/104
We started with 101 and progressed thru 103 and 104. The first question Jason asked at the start of 101 foreshadowed the entire experience: “What are you looking to get from this experience?” Jason tailored the approach to each course, covering all the materials in alignment with our goals. Jason did his ‘classroom’ work on the trip from the marina along the intercoastal waterway (ICW) to the ocean. He took advantage of the ICW and more generally the local environment beautifully — using many moments as teaching opportunities. Jason’s style is welcoming, calming (there can be brief exciting moments at sea and while docking), and always full of learning. Did I mention he always provided good snacks, drinks, and lunches! We took advantage of the ‘live-aboard’ option — sure this saved on hotel bills, but it really gave a nice sense of life on a boat. We’ve now sailed both the Morgan and the Beneteau, in near dead calm and when the winds and seas picked up. The range of experiences has been great. I feel fortunate to have had Jason as an instructor. I’ve been an academic for three decades — Jason is an excellent teacher, with great interpersonal skills, and one for whom I have no hesitation giving my highest recommendation.
Jay & Michael, ASA101/3/4
