My lesson plans use proven teaching methods that assist my students in acquiring fundamental sailing knowledge, sail planning, navigation, marine weather, operational vigilance and boat-handling for all conditions. With over 42,000 NM logged under sail and a professional sailing Instructor for the past 15 years, I have had the privilege to introduce sailing and certify more than 1600 students on cruising keelboats 24-52 feet and cruising catamarans 38-48 feet. My favourite C&L destinations are BC's West Coast including Howe Sound, Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound. I also enjoy Instructing Cruise & Learn adventures in France, Corsica, Sardinia, Italy, Greece, British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Grenadines, Antigua, Turks & Caicos Islands, Chili and UK- 65 weeks in the past 12 years. I am an Instructor for the NauticED Qualified Crew, Coastal Skipper, Bareboat Charter Master and Captain Rank Certifications.
