WORK HISTORY
Head Coach
Red Gear Racing, Clearwater, FL February 2008 to Current
Launched and built one of the premier multi-hull competitive sailing coaching organizations in the U.S. By introducing a new approach for developing young multi-hull sailors, Red Gear Racing youth athletes won the 2011 Youth Nationals Championship and were chosen to sail in the 2011 Youth Worlds Championship. One of our youth athletes teams finished 12th at the F18 World Championships and were the 2012 F18 Youth World Champions. Another youth team that trained in one of Red Gear Racing’s training camps recently won the 2013 Youth qualifier for the Youth Worlds Championships.

In addition to providing world-class coaching, Red Gear Racing invests in developing the complete athlete. Most of the youth athletes are AP students earning high honors. The unique training approach keeps parents closely connected with planning and supervision of activities including travel. Beyond sailing, racing, academics, and maintaining family connections, Red Gear Racing teaches athletes boat maintenance and repair.

Red Gear Racing currently has a fleet of C2/F18s, Viper/F16s, and a N17 to develop sailors in training camps held all over the US.
