Seminar Testimonials

Our 2018 and 2019 seminars received a lot of very positive feedback. Here’s a sample of comments from seminar attendees and organizers:

From seminar attendees:

“Thanks for a very productive and enjoyable day. What I appreciated most was your logical, systematic approach to information gathering and decision making. I always feel it’s a win if I can take away and apply at least one thing. In this case, there were many.”

“I found the seminar incredibly helpful and I’m looking forward to employing what I learned this season.”
“Having been to other seminars (not just in sailing), I loved how the content was at the right level, the presentation was spectacular, and the workbooks have obviously been through a number of iterations and are very polished at this stage.”

“I thought the presentation was excellent. I learned lots of good and detailed information. The handouts are definitely a keepsake and excellent reference material going forward. Ladder rungs forever!”

“Thanks Dave for presenting all the material in an easy-to-understand manner.”

“Thanks for teaching the course last Saturday. I had a great time and wish I could have taken something like this 10 years ago.”

“It was a most informative and inspirational day!”

From seminar organizers:

“Great having you-- I got lots of positive responses, and everyone wants you to come back next year!”

“Thanks again for doing a seminar for us.  Heard nothing but rave reviews!  Well done!”

“Thanks for a great day yesterday!  At least half the audience told me personally how much they enjoyed and valued the experience.  Your experience and knowledge are readily evident in your seminar.”

“That was really great-- thank you for your effort in hitting just the right level for the audience.”

“I want to take a moment and tell you how good I thought your seminar was. The day included the basic information that we expect in a typical seminar, but it also went much deeper into how to think about sailboat racing. We all felt it was very well thought out and prepared. Looking forward to next year!”
