Brian developed the sailing bug in 2011 when his
wife surprised him with sailing lessons as a birthday present.
Shortly thereafter, he purchased a MacGregor 26M and sailing became
his passion. He joined the Pentagon Sailing Club where he became
an ASA Sailing Instructor. Brian then obtained his USCG 25 Ton
Inland Masters License and began participating in the US Naval Academy
Offshore Sail Training Squadron (OSTS) – a program designed to teach
Midshipmen sailing, leadership and teamwork skills aboard 44ft
cutter-rigged US Navy Sail Training Craft during a 4-week summer
cruise. He also enjoys racing with friends out of the Deltaville
Yacht Club in Virginia. Brian now owns SV SPARTAN, a
Hunter 33.5 that he keeps in the Occoquan River and sails throughout
Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. Brian has ASA Instructor certs
from the 201 through 206 levels, plus 214 and 218, and now teaches
with the Maryland School of Sailing at our basic level.
