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.
