We worked with Victor Evans to sell our sailboat and we really had the best possible experience. He was very easy to work with and was super responsive through the entire process. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell a boat!

Victor and the Windworks family are truly amazing. Victor guided me through the boat buying process and was always responsive and professional. He made the entire process a wonderful experience. He is also a thoroughly capable and experienced sailor. I cannot recommend him and Windworks enough!

I had a wonderful day taking BK1 with Victor as my instructor. Victor has a vast fund of knowledge for sailing and creates a great learning environment. His passion for sailing comes through in his teaching. I also appreciated the small class size (four students). I highly recommend this class if you have an interest in learning to sail, you learn a lot in your first day!

We took out Chester, a 34 ft Bavaria on a trip to Port townsend. Nice roomy boat. Most everything was in working order. A couple of minor things: no electric hot water but engine warming worked good and we used shore facilities at all our stops. We were somewhat disappointed with the mainsail not coming totally out from the roller furler. Don't know what was wrong. Otherwise, the boat was clean, roomy and in good shape. Before departure we had good support from the shore crew. Also good support coming back in. Because of problems with moorage at our destination I had to change boats on this reservation two times. Windworks staff were very helpful and patient with those changes.

Basic keelboat one with Chris, was an excellent class. The instructor was patient, knowledgeable, and willing to answer all the questions we threw at him. The experience was also an excellent value with the midweek discount!

Spent two full days with #Windworks instructors (Gordon and Norm). Had a blast, learned a lot, and met some new people. Highly recommend Windworks if you're wanting to learn to sail. The instructors had very different teaching styles and approaches, but were equally effective at teaching the class what we needed to know.

My wife and I took the Basic Keelboating 1 course to begin learning how to sail and make progress toward a sailing license, which will require 2 more 8-hour courses. Our instructor, Victor Evans, was very knowledgeable and patient, and helped us clearly understand how the boat was sailing, and how to effectively perform both a tack and a jibe maneuver including which instructions we should provide to the crew, and which actions we should perform as skipper. After a day of sailing, we have scheduled our Basic Keelboating 2 course and look forward to becoming licensed and spending more time on the water.
