Bridge Randall


Bridge has been sailing small boats for the last 18 years! He started off with an old $500 Alpha One Craigslist special and now he sails with his wife Nancy on their boat Gitana, a Beneteau First 235 up in Eureka, CA.

"Sailing as a student and then as an instructor at OCSC has paid benefits beyond measure," Bridge says.

During COVID restrictions (and with the closure of OCSC), he took on the roll as Commodore for the Humboldt Yacht Club. Hard times, but YouTube saved the day!

Bridge loves sailing small boats… ..."and the J/24 is a big small boat!" he says. "They are so engaging to your body and spirit. All the troubles of the world wash away and the wind fills your soul." He also just finished building a little Eastport Pram so the he can take a sailboat on all his land adventures. Of course her name is Umami because sailing makes everything better.

Bridge is thrilled to be back in Berkeley working at Modern Sailing amid all his other sailing activities.

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

    The Full Moon Sail with Skipper Bob Gutsgell was Ah-Mayzing!! The group dynamic was lovely and the views spectacular. I can't say enough good things about the experience. Thanks so much for the wonderful Club Sails, they are really great.

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.
