WE TEACH SAILING

Three girls tell about their teenage jobs in fresh air and sunshine, developing leadership and having FUN on the ladder from camper to instructor-in-training (an IIT) to Certified Sailing Instructor.

Destiny Simpson, Keagan Gillespie and Grace O’Neil have stories to tell

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Destiny, Keagan and Grace talk about a day on the water, teaching newbies at Jackson Park YC, Chicago

TEACHING IS LEARNING

A Filipino-American kid goes from beginner to Certified Sailing Instructor. He loved the job. He grew every day. And look where he is now.

Sterling Syquia tells the tale

SEARCHING FOR GAY ROLE MODELS

Growing up confused and scared is common for a gay kid discovering herself or himself or themselves. Is it OK to be gay, and a sailor? One worried boy finally came out in college. The sailing team elected him captain.

WHY DOES MY BOAT GO SIDEWAYS?

Coastal waters are always in motion. They’re going somewhere, and so is every river, and that motion is what we call a current. If you study currents of moving water—and learn the tricks of ranging—you will know what’s making you faster or slower.
