Nick has offered one on one and team coaching for my J 120 Team Viva La Vida.  He has conducted several very successful seminars over the offseason to review photos/videos, re-cap the previous season, and help us get on a path for a better season to come.  His preperation and thoughtfulness has helped our J 120 team improve its performance each and every year.

J 111- Rusty Keagle

We did two boat testing with J 111's.  Nick was fantastic.  He was easy to listen to, explained things in a way that was simple to understand.  Over two days Nick kept the training right on schedule, which was pretty amazing considering we had two boats with crews of various skill levels and experience.  Afterwards we recieved a great summery of the training with notes and photos.

I will definitely do this again, personally I will plan on doing it every year.  If you have any interest in improving your race team, there is no better way than having a professional like Nick come and tune up your boat and crew.

Brett and Katie Langolf- #morekidsonsailboats

A total class act! Nick worked with #MoreKidsOnSailboats and their co-ed crew of kids ages 10 to 18! He held their focus and pushed them on the water all day. His knowledge of race prep, ability to champion EVERY role on the boat, allowed him to bring them together as a cohesive team on the water. If you sail and need to elevate your game, crew and skills this the guy!
