I am a Sailor from Arizona. I was looking for insights into the sailing community in Israel. I met Howard Clayman over the internet and had a call with him prior to arriving in Israel. My wife and I had a great experience with Howard sailing out of the Hertzaliya Marina. So much so, that I plan on sending my kids for lessons with him. Highly recommended. Howard is My "SAILING RABBI" in Israel!

On a recent visit to Herzliya we booked a 2 hour sunset cruise with Howard Clayman of Sailing Israel. We were six people including 2 young children. Wht a wonderful experience it was. He headed out of the marina right on time and once out in the Mediterranean enjoyed 90 minutes of sailing on windpower alone while watching a perfect sunset followed by spectacular views of the night lights of Tel Aviv and Herzliya. Howard was informative and interesting and was wonderful with the children. We toasted the sunset with a complimentary bottle of white wine provided. Highly recommended and we would book it again next time we spend time in Herzliya.

We had a fantastic trip out with Howard. It was smooth sailing on a comfortable boat. Howard expertly handled the boat, giving me complete confidence to just sit back and enjoy. He also is an excellent conversationalist who is happy to share his knowledge and opinions about Israel and about sailing in the Mediterranean. It was a great time -- I highly recommend taking this fun trip. It's well worth your money.

Sublime experience yesterday with Howard, who took our family of four out for a two-hour sail just off the coast of Herzliya. He is a confident and knowledgeable captain, full of experience and laid-back, too. The bottle of wine, beers and chips were a nice touch. Recommend for a relaxing afternoon. I suspect a nighttime cruise past the lights of Tel Aviv, would be sublime. Recommend! And thanks, Howard. We'll see you soon.

Thank you so much Laurie! It was a pleasure to sail with you and the family yesterday. When I have as much fun on the sail as you guys did, I know it was a successful voyage. I'll look forward to having you aboard again soon, and especially for that promised nighttime cruise past Tel Aviv.
