Sailing started for me as a father/son activity on the lakes in Utah and off the coast of Los Angeles. Early college boredom set in and I took off to the Caribbean to study on the 88' Schooner, Ocean Star. I found a job teaching sailing in the BVI at a teen summer program called ActionQuest. I stuck with them for seven years until I decided to find new sailing grounds.

Where could be better to hone sailing skills than the SF Bay? I found OCSC in the back of Latitude 38 and haven't looked back. I've been walking around the campus and sailing the various boats with a huge smile on my face. Everywhere I look and everyone I meet, staff and students alike, are united by the desire to understand wind, water and a little ingenuity.
