Captain Jarod was very personable and knowledgeable. He pointed out local iconic spots along the way and told us interesting historical facts and stories. The conditions were perfect for sailing! It was my birthday and he put up a Happy Birthday banner for me. We had plenty of snacks and beverages. I brought my own white wine. Overall, a good afternoon of sailing with family!
