Level V Captain Rank Chief Sailing Instructor / Assessor

I want to share my love of sailing. My first mate (my wife) and I fell in love with sailing after seeing a family enjoy a Hobie Cat at the beach almost 20 years ago. After that we began learning on increasing size boats over the years (including that very Hobie Cat) and now teach on our Ericson 32. I find that sailing is different things for people. For my wife it is the peace and calm of the open air and water. I feel the same but also the mental engagement needed to always be evaluating the wind and course. Come join us and find your passion for sailing!
