Tyler Cobbett


Captain Tyler loves time on the water on any kind of craft from sail to power, canoes to kayaks. A member of Modern Sailing since 2009, Tyler has chartered most of the yachts in the Gold and Platinum fleets in Sausalito. Favorite cruises include Greece’s Ionian Islands, Canada’s beautiful North Channel, Newport, Rhode Island to Toronto via the Hudson River, Erie and Oswego canal systems, and trips to Monterey and Carmel.

Tyler raced Hobie 20s, 18s, and 16s throughout California and the Great Lakes for 20 years before concentrating on keelboats.

In March 2023, his sailing naturally evolved to teaching for Modern Sailing in both Sausalito and Berkeley. He finds students benefit from learning boathandling and rigging on sportboats, then transitioning to cruising yachts. With his background on multihulls, Tyler especially loves teaching cruising catamaran courses.

When he's not on the water, Tyler is an avid hiker, skier, and musician.

    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.

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.
