Peter Moorhead

Instructor
 

Peter returns to Modern Sailing to teach classes and skipper charter boats, having retired from managing commercial property and harbors in San Francisco and right here at Marina Plaza Harbor. He started sailing at the age of eight on his dad’s 24 foot sailboat, often spending weekends in Tiburon, sailing from the South Bay to Coyote Point. After college at UC Berkeley, he expanded his sailing resume with a USCG License and his first job at Lake Tahoe. This was followed with three years running charter boats in Tortola, BVI, working on tugs on San Francisco Bay, and eventually landing a harbor job at South Beach-SF and in Sausalito.

Next came a teaching credential and a move into high school coaching tennis. Over the years, Peter has delivered boats, done a few races to Hawaii and Mexico, and continues to sail with his friends and family. When he’s not sailing, you can find him on the tennis courts or on the mountain riding a bike. And yes he still owns that little 24’ - celebrating 50 years of sailing on the bay!

Testimonials

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!
