Don Boccuti

Don has been teaching at the Maryland School of Sailing since 1998.  He is certified to teach through the 106 level, but gets a lot of satisfaction from sharing his love of sailing with new and intermediate students.  He likes laying the ground-work for those students who will move on to our ocean cruising levels. He  enjoys getting post cards and emails from his many students who are now sailing the world. He is also an instructor for our popular Docking Classes, and a three-time winner of  the ASA Outstanding Instructor Award in 2012, 2013 and 2015. Don, a former Marine, and his wife, Charlene, now live in Rock Hall but they often visit their two daughters and seven grandchildren who still live in Pennsylvania.


"Just a quick note to let you know that the ASA 104 course was PERFECT for me! Don couldn't have fit the bill any better for teaching the sailing and knowledge portions. We had the greatest weather, from delightful cruising days to a nighttime gale, and big winds and waves near the end of the course. I've never met a man so patient, laid back, and unflappable. All three of us learned so much from him.  Thanks for talking with me about the appropriate level of the course I needed."
