We were a party of five; most sailing novices. CAPT. Bill couldn't have been nicer, giving basic skills training to our two young ones (12&13) and charming the adults with his stories. A fun afternoon.

My wife, sister, brother in law, niece, and her fiancé" went for a sail while visiting my niece in Williamsburg. The owner operator, captain Bill, is a knowledgeable, laid back sailor. Everything was as he said it would be and I would highly recommend.
