"I've been sailing at Hoofers since 2006 and began instructing on keelboats and J-Boats in 2008. In 2010 I was certified as an ASA Basic Keelboat Instructor. The skills and knowledge I've developed since joining Hoofers, have enabled me to sail across the Caribbean, around the Virgin Islands and along the Dalmatian coast. I co-own a 30' sailboat on Lake Michigan in which I've raced in 5 Mac Races among other adventures. My goal in instructing at Hoofers is to open up the world of sailing to those just getting started.
