What people are saying...

"Brent is a seasoned sailor, coach and teacher.  He has a certain approach to teaching and learning that takes the intimidation out learning how to sail. He advanced our sailing skills and knowledge to get the most out of our experience.  He also challenged us beyond our comfort zone so that we are confident with your skills.

Brent Nicole have meticulously maintained Global Explorer.  The boat is spacious and comfortable. Oh and the food and social experience Brent and Nicole cultivate on board , a five star, unforgettable experience!

We didn't want to leave!!"

"Brent is the consummate professional sailor. He operates his boat, the Global Explorer, with a constant focus on competence and safety – there are no corners cut. His focus on learning the correct, safe way to handle a boat is made all that much easier by his pleasant demeanor and warm humour. When you are training with Brent, you are training with the best – his years of experience maintaining and handling his own boat (not to mention his time in the Naval Reserve) deliver the skills and confidence you need to skipper your own boat."

“One of the most knowledgeable and experienced sailors I’ve ever met! A natural born leader and educator and one heck of a nice guy! Brent has oodles of experience with a broad range of ages and learning styles and can easily adapt to every individual’s needs. We learned so much from Brent during our 5 day ‘vacation’ with him aboard Global Explorer.”

Brent and Nicole provide an unparalleled learning environment aboard a vessel that paired comfort with practicality. Brent is one of the handiest and most skilled sailors I've ever met. He is just as adept as an instructor if not more so. The accommodations were sophisticated yet practical and made down time after long days of sailing ever so magical. The food was simply WOW. Brent's wife Nicole was aboard our journey and made it even more impressive with more learning than you can shake a winch at. I recommend any voyage with these sailors. 5 out of 5

I spent a glorious three days aboard the Global Explorer under the expert tutelage of Brent Bezugley and his wife, Nicole. Instruction was clear and organized, with lots of hands-on opportunity. Safe operation was at the forefront, including a focus on trip planning and risk mitigation. The training was also geared to the onboard audience, allowing each of us to learn and grow from our current level of experience. Global Explorer is a very comfortable yacht, clean and extremely well maintained. The experience was highly valuable and extremely enjoyable. Looking forward to my next opportunity aboard the Global Explorer to further my cruising training and enhancing my skills on the water!
