Catamaran Guru introduces Captain Jeff Riecks and his boat, Mira Mar, a 2006 Fountaine Pajot Lavezzi 40, as one of our preferred sailing schools in Florida! We toured his boat, checked out the location in Tavernier, Florida, enjoyed some quality time with him, then decided to recommend him as a first rate school!
He operates in the Florida Keys / Bahamas from November through May, and the Chesapeake Bay from June through October, with passage-making opportunities in between.
Jeff is a highly educated and accomplished sailing instructor. But best of all, he is just a really nice and fun guy and a great teacher who is passionate about sailing! He specializes in catamaran sailing adventures and American Sailing Association (ASA) courses.
He is currently the Standards Coordinator for the American Sailing Association (ASA), where he contributes to the upkeep of ASA’s education standards, textbooks, and exams. He also serves on the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) Education Standards Panel (ESP), and is a member of the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) Project Technical Committee (PTC) for the National On-water Skills (NOWS) Program.
The sailing school's catamaran, Mira Mar, offers a 4-cabin, 2-head layout, with queen/double berths and is a well appointed and comfortable boat. Mira Mar is not too big or intimidating and is the perfect catamaran to learn on for "newbies". We highly recommend Jeff Riecks and Mira Mar Sailing Adventures as a sailing school and for an enjoyable sailing adventure in Florida!
