Dan was a great host and answered all of our sailing questions, we learned how the boat works and helped steer and raise/lower the sail! Dan was very communicative before the experience and monitored the weather conditions, he reached out and personally rescheduled my excursion when my original date got rained out. The lake was beautiful and we passed a variety of other boaters while out on the water—–highly recommend this trip for locals and tourists!
