Sailing School Reviews / Testimonials
When my husband and I were searching for a sailing school in the Holland, MI area, we were fortunate enough to choose GT Sailing School. I had not sailed for over 30 years and had never had any experience
Phyllis Turbeville - ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising
As a long time sailor and ASA certified instructor, I do not own a sailboat, but prefer to charter sailboats. My family and I love the GT school sailboats for many reasons
John Weller - GT Sailing School
I've personally sailed for over 35 years, having taught myself everything I know about sailing - good and bad. Fortunately I'm smart enough to know that there is much I don't know about sailing
