Rated 4.87/5 by 3 students
The more I sail the more I love it! There is nothing quite like getting the sails up, turning the engine off, and experiencing the pure joy of feeling the sun on your face, the wind in your sails and the water all around you. I've been sailing for 20 years and have been a boat-owning skipper for the last 15. As both an active racer and cruiser I am typically sailing at least 50 times per year, continuously developing my own skills, teaching and building race crew teams and actively supporting women in sailing. Feedback from my crews over the years is that as a skipper I am patient, easy to understand, explain things well, have an empathetic spirit and am inspirational as well as empowering. My foray into formal Sailing Instruction is a natural evolution combining my passion for the sport with my honed leadership and coaching skills accrued through my professional career. I can't wait to get you out on the water! https://sailingstrong.com/ Learn more about Merilee Wright...

Jeff 'Vegas' Howard

Private Instructor - Newport Beach, CA, USA
Passionate sailor and experienced instructor at your service! I discovered the thrill of sailing at 14, at Boy Scout camp. Mastering Small Boat Sailing, I returned the next summer to teach sailing, and I acquired my first boat, a used El Toro, from that camp, and a few years later a Hobie 16. Many years later, I bought my first boat with a cabin below; a 28' Columbia. I embraced the journey, learning through experiences like my first multi-day open-ocean trip in that boat from Long Beach to San Diego. After a couple of years, I purchased a very fast 24’ Seawind Catamaran. I delivered it to San Diego from Newport Beach before realizing my true passion lies in the joy of cruising, not racing. This insight led me to a 42' Hunter and eventually a 46' Hunter. Sailing vessels are my love, and I enjoy sharing that love with others. I promise to treat each vessel and student with the utmost care and love. Let my passion elevate your sailing experience. Learn more about Jeff 'Vegas' Howard...

Captain J's father was a lobster fisherman. Even while fulfilling his mother's ambitions, that he become an architect, Captain J always kept a toe in the water.

After finding a like-minded First Mate, Captain J sold the house, and moved to a sailboat, where the couple raised two children while island hopping the Caribbean.

Rated 5/5 by 1 student
Since I started sailing, my mission has been to demystify sailboat design: understanding how they work, how their design affects their function, and how to sail them faster. I love teaching performance sailing to intermediate/advanced sailors who still wonder, "How does that control line do what it does?" My goal is sailing well, with speed, balance, and safety. I designed and delivered "The Physics of Yacht Design" seminar series, covering the most important aspects of yacht design at an accessible level. It requires only high-school math and physics knowledge, yet it is detailed enough to interest both beginner and experienced sailors. My favorite sailboat is the J/80, and I volunteer as a skipper for adaptive sailing programs whenever possible. I hold a PhD in fluid machines and energy systems engineering, as well as an MSc in nuclear engineering, specializing in numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics.

My love for the ocean compelled me to achieve a degree in Marine Biology (I'm the definition of a shark nut). After graduating I decided to move to the northwest to get a taste of the Pacific Ocean and got sucked into sailing - where I managed sailing schools and clubs in Seattle, Olympia, and Gig Harbor Washington.

Bill Ibsen

Private Instructor - Buford, GA, USA
Teaching, coaching, and instructing others to grow in their knowledge, skill, and experience has been a decades-long passion of mine. Helping others to perform skills that at first seem daunting or scary, but with repetition and fine-tuning turn into “I really can do this!” or even “I’m good at this!” brings me great life satisfaction. I am teacher/instructor at heart, and bring multi-disciplinary experience into my sailing instruction. Serving as a professional high-performance driving instructor for the Porsche Experience Center plus my 20 years’ experience teaching and authoring national articles on off-road competition motorcycle skills, combined with being a NauticEd Course Author and Editorial Contributor, I feel comfortable teaching any adult student, male or female, especially in situations that feel like near a student's limits. I am a volunteer skipper for weeklong marriage sailing adventures around the breathtaking Caribbean waters of the BVI on new Voyage 590 catamarans. Learn more about Bill Ibsen...
Location notes: I train on a Catalina 18 at Lake Lanier, or on customer sailboats.

David Carey

Private Instructor - Erie, PA, USA
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! Learn more about David Carey...
Location notes: I can train you on my Ericson 32 or on your boat during the sailing season which runs from May thru October each year. Off season I am available to travel if you are interested just contact me.
