I am a Level III US Sailing Certified instructor who has been working in the maritime industry for over a decade. I grew up sailing and racing on the coast of Maine as a child and later as young adult. While in college, I began instructing at the Lake Champlain Community Sailing where I have been teaching since 2012. In my seven years as an instructor, I have taught to a wide variety of ages, abilities, and backgrounds which has enabled me to provide unique educational experiences for individuals interested in sailing as well as the history and ecology of Lake Champlain.

Where you'll be

The lesson will be hosted at our brand new state of the art Community Waterfront Center, recently constructed in 2017. From there, we will set sail on the beautiful waters of Lake Champlain. During your learn to sail course, instructors will help you navigate your way to Lone Rock Point, a geological landmark in which one can see a thrust fault that exposes older "Cambrian-aged rocks" above younger rocks.
