Learn to Sail

Captain Gardner Lloyd of Flagship Sailing

We made the decision to learn how to sail and to purchase a sailboat in 2005 so we took Basic Keelboat (BKB 101) sailing lessons with Flagship Sailing in Clearwater, Florida.

Captain Gardner Lloyd taught us the fundamentals aboard a Catalina 22. We learned to hoist sails, tack and gybe, practiced MOB drills and docking skills on the pleasant Gulf of Mexico. We felt very comfortable with Captain Lloyd and will most likely return to Clearwater to take more classes from him and Flagship. We’d recommend him highly; he is a patient and congenial teacher for both men and women.

Flagship Sailing staff is certified by the American Sailing Association and licensed by the US Coast Guard.
