"Nigel is an excellent resource for instructor training. He ran a prerequisite clinic for us at National Yacht Club and his knowledge and coaching experience were invaluable assets for helping our future instructors reach their full potential. His course was well organized and his passion for sailing and teaching were evident in his ability to create a supportive, engaging and fun learning environment. We look forward to working with him again in the future!"
"Nigel came to our overnight summer camp for three days in July and August 2019 and worked with both staff and campers to teach and offer ways to improve our CanSail program. He is an amazing teacher and is flexible and easy to work with. Nigel understands “camp”, recognizing that the campers sail as well as participate in many other activities. He has high expectations for himself and the staff and they were eager to work with him. Nigel will be returning this summer to teach, mentor and evaluate. We could not be more satisfied with all aspects of his work."
"Nigel was one of my Learning Facilitators for a CANSail 1&2 Instructor Qualification course at BHYC. He was a phenomenal instructor–knowledgeable, organized, and great at making the curriculum fun and engaging. He was also very supportive and gave excellent feedback. Thanks to his instruction, I took much more away from the course than what was required, and it helped me instrumentally in my first summer of teaching sailing! I cannot thank Nigel enough!"
