    Captain is absolutely the best Captain we have had the pleasure of chartering with. He is the most easy going Captain well in charge of the vessel. His easy going demeanor supports all levels of sailing experience from beginners to experiences sailors. He manages the boat with ease and knows how to coach others at the helm. We will look for Captain Russ as a key ingredient to the success of our future charters. Thanks Captain.


  • The boat was clean as expected and everything functioned as expected. Captain Russ is a real plus on this trip as Captain. He is exceptionally accommodating, very well versed on the history of the Peconic Bay and is the most supportive sailing coach I have ever experienced. He is able to work with all levels of sailing experience treating everyone with respect. No matter what boat he Captains, we will look for Captain Russ to insure we have a great day on the water. Thank you Captain Russ.
