Richard Jensen

Instructor

Richard's lifelong sailing adventure began with island hopping on a small sailing dinghy at age 14 in the South Pacific Kwajalein Atoll of the Marshall Islands. Frequently meeting visiting cruisers expanded his desire to explore the world of sailing. Learning to sail native outriggers, understanding their ancient navigation technology, and appreciating the significant role that sailing vessels have played over thousands of years in the evolution of mankind drew Richard even deeper into the world of cruising. Sailing became a fascination that would stay with him always.

For the last 50 years, Richard has enjoyed, sailed, owned and cruised several designs of small and large vessels. In addition to recreational Hobie cat racing, wind surfing and captaining charters on his Morgan 44, he has taught various levels of sailing for 5 years at sailing schools including Modern Sailing, launching students on their own lifelong sailing adventures. Richard enjoys meeting new sailors on the Bay and sea and welcoming them to the wonderful world of sailboats, wind and water!

Testimonials

  • 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!

  • Ray Arceneaux

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

  • Andrew Goble, San Francisco

    It has been wonderful sailing with MSC over the years. Please extend my thanks to the owners, management, and staff for unrequited professionalism and high standards in a charter fleet. I have sailed with several in my years and none nearly hold a candle to the quality of business and staff at Modern Sailing.
