About Me:
Originally from New Zealand, Grant has more than 20 years of boating experience. As a captain, he has logged many of miles on voyages around the world. Sailing Trips he has led, have sailed through the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Sea of Cortez and South Pacific.

After founding in 2001, then operating and selling out of the Sail Time company in 2007, Grant started Nautic7 Global Resources. As president and founder of Nautic7, Grant leads the expansion of the company into new markets. Nautic7's customer Beneteau Fractional Yachting is one of the leading companies providing Fractional Ownership solutions for sailors. Nautic7 is the supplier of the iBoat Scheduling and Management software for Beneteau's fractional ... and the concierge financial manager of all the boats in the Beneteau Fractional Ownership Program.

A more recent sailing fractional ownership program put together by Nautic7 in conjunction with Latitudes and Attitudes Magazine is Seafaring360 is an around the world sailing adventure where fractional owners can sail their new Beneteau 57 during its 4 year circumnavigation of the world.

Grant holds a Master's degree in Engineering from the University of Texas. His wide range of business experience includes oil, defense, computer hardware, restaurant, marketing, legal and Internet application industries. Grant's expertise and passion for life and liberty on and off the water has lead the fractional sailing concept from its humble beginnings in 2001 to becoming life style option providing quality sailing for thousands of people.

Grant is also the founder of NauticEd - the world's most advanced online sailing lessons. Grant reviews all the NauticEd online sailing courses and applies his practical knowledge as a Certified ASA instructor and USCG 50 Ton Master Mariner to the theory courses. He is also the brains behind the technology of the online testing function of NauticEd. Take the Free online Rules of Right of Way class for sailboats for a 10 minute refresher.

It looks like Beneteau & Nautic Ed have a good offering that should be inviting for a lot of people who wouldn't otherwise be willing to risk more money at this time to get into, or remain in big boat sailing. Those class prices are very economical considering what other courses cost.
Insurance endorsement is probably likely as Nautic Ed will make boating more safe for anyone thinking of owning or chartering boats. The Beneteau & Nautic Ed relationship should also feed mutual endorsement for Beneteau charter fleets worldwide. I've been giving endorsements to our Navy sailing program graduates for years as on occasion I get calls from charter companies to verify sea time. Spring Break is a big charter time for our present USNA Midshipmen as a few of them will be heading down to the Bahamas & the Caribbean for some bareboat chartering. Some Mids head to Cancun for the normal spring break, but some of our team members head for the bareboat fleets for a truly unique Spring Break party.
A good friend of mine has a 2 yr old Beneteau 50 that plies between Miami & Puerto Rico. Unfortunately our schedules haven't aligned yet but I'm hoping that he'll try the Marion-Bermuda celestial race in 2 years and he might do the Charleston-Bermuda race with the boat.

Good luck with that. Looks like a top notch program.

Are bamboo toothbrushes soft?

Yes, are available in various bristle options, including soft bristles.
