Nate Carver

Private Instructor - New York, NY, USA
Rated 5/5 by 2 students
I don't remember the first time I went sailing, but it is family lore. Two years old, having stayed on the beach and hearing how much fun everyone else had on a boat, I announced that I'd like to go sailing. My family dropped everything and that was it. From there I've spent a lot of time on other people's boats. Coastal cruising in Monterey Bay and San Diego. Family sailing in San Fransisco Bay, Catalina Island, Santa Barbara. Collegiate dingy racing and corinthian big boat racing on Lake Michigan. Delivery through the Panama Canal. Charters in Caribbean, Great Lakes, the Med. But some of the best sailing I've known has been in the New York City because of the Hudson River Community Sailing where I started volunteering with new sailors, high schoolers, racers, and the general public. Now I've expanded to teach and share my love of sailing aboard Calliope, a 36 foot sailboat in Long Island Sound. Helping new sailors get move from small keelboats to "big boat" sailing and cruising.

Location notes: I train on a 1987 Sabre 36 sailboat in western Long Island Sound, from May through October each year. During the winter months, I am available to travel and assist with skippering in the US and Caribbean. Just contact me for more info.
