MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE:
Beginning my intercollegiate sailing career thinking I knew everything about this sport, and leaving knowing that I will never know everything. This Sport is a fantastically complex, lifelong learning adventure.
Also, sailing an offshore race off the FL coast in less than ideal weather conditions: blinding rain, extreme winds and continuous lightning – we were one of the few boats that didn’t get damaged or struck by lightning!
WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT TEACHING SAILING:
Sharing my passion for this sport and witnessing that passion and joy awaken in a brand new sailor.
