TESTIMONIALS
I have been on two week-long cruises with Delta Sailing School, and both times were a fantastic and transformative experience. The folks at Delta Sailing take care of everything – all I had to do was show up with a week’s worth of clothes, board our luxury sailing yacht, and enjoy the peace and serenity of life on the water.
