Thom ..I could never thank you enough for taking the sailing seed in me and making it grow. I'll never forget you standing by the back stay, coke in hand telling me to close my eyes, and let go of the helm..and when I did, you said "now could you do that for the rest of your life". I finally am..and I doubt I'd be on this boat ,in this marina, sitting in tonight's reality, without your teaching. A very sincere thank you!!

I have taken the ASA101, ASA103 and ASA104 classes with Northern Breezes, and I have really loved it! The instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly. As a sailboat owner, I find my sailing skills improving right after I complete a class, so I have a whole list that I will sign up for in the upcoming seasons.

I have been meaning to send you an email on the sailing trip to the BVI. I'm finally catching up now that Navigation classes are completed.I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the sailing classes in the BVI with Tom E. He was very professional in his duties as our instructor, treated everyone with respect even though we had a couple that didn't pass. They really did enjoy the sailing experience for the whole week. They were fun to be around, and I learned from Bob some of the navigation experiences he has had on other trips. Mark and I were more agile and could do lots of the necessary things to prepare the boat and perform many of the required tasks, so that helped us gain more confidence by doing things. Tom gave us directions to complete the necessary tasks, and with his experience he could relate some of the things that could go wrong if we did not perform them correctly. His experience was a valuable tool for our understanding how to handle the boat in different situations. He had a calm demeanor when things needed an explaination a second time, only in a different way, so we could understand what was expected.Joyce was very organized in her way of keeping the galley stocked and clean.Meals were great, and always prepared with speed.My compliments to you on your choice of leaders/instructors for our sailing and learning experience.I would love to sail with Northern Breezes again in the future as I learn more about the total sailing experience.Mark and I sat in the BVI Yacht Club after the trip, and we both talked about our next trip.Thanks again, It was a great experience and I am spreading the word in this area about my great memories and experiences.Hope you enjoy the pictures on the CD from my trip.I just found out on Saturday, a friend of mine will be putting his 21 ft Hunter on a lift in front of my place on Lake Kampeska this summer, so I will be able to practice my skills.

Just wanted to say 'Thanks' for the wonderful sailing trip I had with Vicki in the Caribbean. The rest of the crew was amazing and the trip was great. Vicki needs to get a Log Book for me and fill it out for the 4 certifications I passed! Looking forward to getting out on the water again and soon although it won't be as nice here as in the Caribbean

I successfully completed Advanced Coastal Cruising with Capt Thom Burns on Lake Superior. This was a demanding and enjoyable learning experience. Sailing on Superior provides as much knowledge and experience as obtained in Gulf of Mexico, US East Coast or the Carribean. All aspects of this week-long training sail were outstanding. The opportunity to get signed off on spinaker was an added plus.
