Mark Pickett

Lead Fleet Technician

Mark fell in love with sailing by buying a sailboat on a whim, followed by the book ASA 101, Basic Keelboat Sailing book “Sailing Made Easy.” His first time out sailing was a disaster - and he was hooked! Given Mark's all-or-nothing approach, he decided to make sailing his way of life and found work in the industry. He later discovered the world of offshore racing and now loves the open ocean and bluewater sailing. He's been happily playing with boats ever since!

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
