I'm a Professional Sailing Instructor, and I'm pretty happy about that! So many people I know work at things they Don’t like, so they can get out and do what they Do like. Getting passion and profession together took me a long time, but I have the right mix now. I'm an educator first, and a sailor second. I’ve been fortunate to have great mentors, and to have built on that foundation and break new ground. I enjoy sharing the things I know and love with others, and if you want to improve your competence and confidence in the world of sailing and cruising, we're going to have a great time!
