"We learned how we can get first-timers on the water effectively to give them a taste of rowing and sailing. The coaches were great in giving us information to help visitors."

"We worked very closely with Shells & Sails in planning and organizing our Try-It Day event. What really stood out to me [about the capability and likability of the staff] was their relaxed and helpful team approach to the event. The event was a great success precisely because Hanlan and Shells & Sails worked together in a relaxed and mutually supportive manner."
