What J World graduates have to say
"What I liked about J World was the entire program. I cannot single out any particular aspect. The program and staff were outstanding. This may be the best practical course of study on any subject that I have ever taken. Bar none the best money I have ever spent on sailing." KM, Newbury, MA
"I have just returned from a very enjoyable , and very useful seven days of sailing and instruction in Key West. I'm happy to say that I was able to certify in both Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising. First and foremost, this is the second year in which I have attended a J World course, and I have to say the caliber, knowledge and level of concern for teaching sailing to new sailors is absolutely the best. Every instructor I've had the opportunity to train with has been superb..." DS, Alexandria, VA
"We have just returned from your five day Learn to Sail course in Newport. We couldn't be more pleased. The program provided more than we'd hoped for and we met some great people who've become friends in a very short time. The curriculum was just what we needed. We've been sailing off and on for years but with little formal instruction. J World showed us what was wrong with a lot of what we had been doing and taught us more in a week than we would have learned in another decade of reading and sailing alone." SF, Sheffield, AL
"Last week I spent seven days learning to sail and cruise in Key West with you extraordinary staff. They made the effort to encourage this "scaredy-cat" to push my limits and recognize that I and the boat could do it! As a teacher I am in awe of your staff's inter-personal skills. They were patient, highly knowledgeable and very encouraging. I am excited about learning more and stretching myself, something I've never done in the past. Your staff made me see nothing is impossible. Thank you for my extraordinary experience." DM, via email.
"J World was worth every penny. 120% satisfied. I'm trying to get as many of my crew to go to J World for a racing course next spring. The impact on my racing my own boat was immediate and obvious... I noticed that I was all of a sudden more aware of things on the boat. I could look and see what was going on on all parts of the boat and stop mistakes before they happened" BJP, via email
"I am writing to express my thanks and praise for a splendid week at J World in Key West. I was extremely impressed by the standard of lectures and instruction, and very satisfied with the course content. I never believed it was possible to learn so much in such a short time. I will certainly highly recommend J World to everyone in Bermuda and trust you will see many of us making the flight over to sail with you again. It could not have been a better week!" HC, Hamilton Bermuda.
"It's been a week since the Astra Merck Management Team completed our "tour of duty" at J World in Annapolis. I must say we are acting quite smug since we are the envy of many other departments/teams for having experienced this unique opportunity... My compliments to you, your organization and your great coaches. I know we all gained from the experience. Please feel free to use Astra Merck Inc. on your reference list of satisfied corporate customers." RH, Wayne, PA
