MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS

Flexible & reactive staffing...

While we have somehow labelled each of our instructors, we are not rigid in who coaches who. Our instructors, just like our sessions, are one big team focused on one thing — learning how to sail and having fun while doing it. We often mix it up, allowing us to adapt to groups characteristics while keeping each session fresh and dynamic for our participants.

I started sailing at West River in 2015 as a camper and have attended summer camp there each year, the last two as an instructor. I joined the West River High School team last fall and I have raced with the Pirate's Cove Race Club on a Beneteau 40.7, WHATSHERNAME, for the last year.
