Every Flagship instructor holds an USCG Master's License, and each has decades of real sea service on the water.



"I found this hard to believe, but even facing a class with large differences in experience and education, Skip demonstrated an ability to present the materials as an instructor and coach with a method that created such enthusiasm that he was able to keep the attention of all students, instill confidence in everyone, and develop everyone's maritime skills successfully."
