About Us


Hi, my name is John Miller.  I have sailed over 70,000 nm on the ocean, coastal, inland lakes and rivers in the US, Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico.  And, have had the pleasure to work with some of the most talented sailors on the West Coast to deliver the best attended and highest rated safety programs; Bruce Brown, Peter Isler, John Jourdane and Keith Kilpatrick to name a few.
