Talisman, a Beneteau Oceanis 35, features a roller-furling jib and lazy jack/stackpack system on the mainsail, making her an easy boat to sail short-handed. She is a stiff boat that sails briskly! With a well equipped galley and two cabins, Talisman is a great value for a multi-day getaway. Talisman has a spacious cockpit and a comfort rating of 6 people.
The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
