I am a personable guy who loves teaching kids the art of sailing! I have been sailing ever since I can remember. The first boat I sailed by myself was an optimist. I sailed the opti for about a year, and then I moved up to an old butterfly we found in the woods. I named it “banana boat” ...due to the bright yellow deck. This boat brought me to many national regattas, where I struggled to be in the top. Over a few years, I worked my way from the bottom of the fleet to about mid fleet. One year (the year I got my brother’s newer boat) something clicked, and I placed second at the butterfly nationals, and 2nd at the WMYA Western Michigan Yachting Association regatta. After those top finishes, I threw myself into training and researching sailing. I pushed myself to be the best I could, but I also owe my sailing accomplishments to my awesome instructors.
Charlie will also be returning this summer, and he is aqcuiring his US sailing Level 1 instructor certification. He grew up sailing on Spring Lake and has been sailing most of his life. Charlie is a Western Michigan Butterfly Champion and was Top Junior Champion at MC Blue Chip. He also crewed on the winning E scow at the Michigan Invite held on Lake Charlevoix. This summer he will be a lead racing instructor helping our young racers sharpen their skills and expand their racing stratigies.
