Sydney Weekender Host Mike Whitney Learns to Sail with Smart Boating

Sydney Weekender host Mike Whitney enjoyed a great day out on Pittwater on our charter yacht…

… under the expert guidance of SmartBoating sailing instructor George Pearce.

Mike commented on how lovely and peaceful boating on Pittwater is compared to Sydney Harbour.

Here’s more about Mike Whitney’s day sailing on Pittwater

Hi Sarah and David,

Just wanted to express my feelings about the recent course Renee and I did on the weekend.

George was a great teacher and really made the course, he was so calm and this certainly made the experience highly enjoyable.

We had great weather and on the Sunday when we experienced a sudden change in the wind needing us all to work pretty smartly and quickly with his quiet orders it was made easy.

I am so glad my kids bought this as a present for me and can truly say that age is no barrier to sailing!

Once again thanks especially to George for the experience which was truly memorable.
