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.

The NauticEd online sailing courses supplement practical training performed by a sailing school. With NauticEd, you can take as long as you need to complete a sailing course, take the tests as many times as you like and review the content for life.

Your sailing school instructor will digitally sign off on your sailing certification when you pass your practical hands-on sailing training. Your sailing certificate is then updated in real-time for you to print out and hang with pride on your office wall. Each time you pass another sailing course, your sailing certificate is automatically updated.
