I just finished my bareboat cruising course with captain Brian and it was an absolute hoot! I've taken a few classes through windworks, but this was my favorite. We did a ton of practice and emergency drills, which made every sailor on the trip walk away feeling more confident of their skills in every type of situation. The added bonus to learning and practicing so much was the event was fun! We laughed, drank beers (after parking of course), and enjoyed 2 days of sailing!read more

Just completed the U.S Sailing Basic Cruising class through Windworks. This is by far the best sailing school in the Seattle area. All three instructors, Norm, Will, and Brian, were great with different methods of teaching. I totally recommend Windworks for sailing.read more

We took Basic Keelboat class, and had a great experience all 3 days, in no small part due to outstanding coaching by Elena, Dave and, especially, Brian, who's cheerful and calm attitude helped my wife to overcome fear of tests ;-)read more

I took the Basic Keelboat series of classes consisting of three full-day lessons from three different instructors, Phil (don't know last name), Eric Johnson, and Brian Gross. All three instructors were absolutely first rate. They were knowledgeable, personable and fun. The lessons consisted of both classroom instruction (sailing theory, operation of the sailboat, rules of the road, etc.) and lots of time on the water. I think I have a good grounding in sailing, and now I need to get more practice. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning to sail.read more

All three instructors for the Basic Keelboat classes we took were terrific coaches and teachers. They knew when to teach, when to coach and when to reassure -- and offered supportive and constructive messages. I had only wanted to learn enough to be a helpful crew member on family sails, and I accomplished that and much more. Tacking, jibing, docking and even learning how to rescue a person who has gone overboard! More practice needed, of course, but well on my way.read more

My wife and I chartered a Capri 22 today. It was a beautiful day with moderate wind and snow still on the Olympics. We had never been there before, but the checkout process was seamless. They do require a resume and one should budget a bit of time for the process, but everyone was very nice and helpful. The boat was in fantastic shape. We will DEFINITELY be back.read more

Took the basic powerboat cruising 1 course with Brian and he was great. He made it fun and the skills we picked up were great - he had a great way of instilling confidence in everyone even though the majority of the class had little on water experience with those manuevers in tight space with 30’+ boats. Great course, great instructor!read more

I took the Basic Keelboat course recently and had a fantastic experience! My instructor, Phil, was really knowledgeable and fun. I shared the experience with 2 others and he was really great about making sure everyone got equal time learning different skills sets and manning different positions on the boat. He also assessed areas we all needed more specific practice with and reinforced that by allowing for even more hands-on experience. I'm new to sailing and often notice there aren't always many women out there on the open water. In fact, on this day sail I was the only girl with the other two male students and my male instructor. Phil made me feel very comfortable and I felt like an equally contributing member of the team! I'm very appreciative of this aspect the most, especially as a new sailing student. I absolutely recommend Windworks and I highly recommend asking for Phil! I look forward to completing more courses soon to get closer to sailing certification. Keep up the great work, guys!read more
