She has navigated aboard many ocean and coastal races including two Vancouver Island 360 races, a Transpac, and a Pacific Cup, taking 3rd in her division in 2014. Katie has also worked as a delivery captain on sailboats on the West Coast, in the Bahamas, and back from Hawaii. Her favorite cruising ground to date is the Inside Passage in British Columbia. 

Here in San Francisco Bay, Katie enjoys local racing and cruising on her Express 27. When she isn’t sailing, she works on commissioned carpentry and woodworking projects. Katie began teaching sailing in 2012 and is passionate about passing on her love of sailing to others.

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

    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!

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.
