I am an audio visual learner and this fills the bill. W. Reston, Houston I have received your CD and have enjoyed the time with my boys learning how to sail. It makes it look so easy. We will be well prepared when we take sailing lessons next summer. Thank you! T. Planty, NY Your software appears to be the ideal type I have been seeking for a good deal of time. Your software is to be used to help conduct ground school at high school for a senior class Naval Junior ROTC leadership course. Once I found this software and checked your website, I was certain this was what would fit best for my first step into training media. I can foresee that this software will also prove useful in teaching over 140 students at the NJROTC Area Four Leadership Academy/Sail Training Program at Newport for two weeks each summer for the best two students from 64 schools across 18 states. If you have other software or other products, I know several other instructors who would be interested. CDR M.M, USN, MA
