I am beyond excited to be rejoining the SLSC dream team for another fun fueled summer. Adding to my excitement is my new role at SLSC, this time in the form of CANSail 4 instructor and co-head instructor where I’ll be working with a truly amazing group of people.

Now for a little insight into your new head instructor. I just finished my first year at the University of Calgary where I’m studying business. While there if I’m not dreaming about summer I like to spend a lot of my time outside skiing, biking or hiking. In my free time I enjoy watching sports, game of thrones and playing the occasional videogame.

Looking forward to another amazing summer!

Hi everyone!! I’m very excited to come back to Sturgeon for my 3rd summer as an instructor. After a long winter with a distinct lack of sailing I’m really looking forward to getting back on the water and leading the 420 Race Team to regattas far and wide.

Favourite Morning Game: British
Favourite Dance Theme: Pajama
Spirit Animal: I’d like to say some sort of dog
One Meal for the Rest of my Life: Hungry Man microwave dinners
Time Travel Year: I asked this question to my Grade 12 history teacher and he said 1815 so he could attend the Congress of Vienna. The Congress was basically an attempt to redraw national borders to ensure peace within Europe after Napoleon’s conquest. I thought it was a silly answer at the time but the more I think about it the more I think it would be pretty cool. I’m also a pretty big American History nerd so the Second Continental Congress would give the Congress of Vienna a run for its money if I could only pick one.
Run 100 vs Fly 10: Run 100 mph

I have been eagerly awaiting the first day of club for the 2016 sailing season all year, and I am pleased to say that day 311 of my wistful waiting is just around the corner. I am absolutely thrilled to be rejoining the team for a second summer of sailing shenanigans and I’m looking forward to working with such a fabulous instructor crew!

I’ve just finished my final year of high school and will be heading off to McGill in the fall to study a little bit of everything. In my free time, I like to go on camping trips, host solo dance parties in my room (mostly to Pink Floyd) and re-watch The Princess Bride.

Favourite Dance Theme: Disco
Spirit Animal: An (ad)elephant
One Meal for the Rest of my Life: I’m currently vegetarian, but I’d give that up in a heartbeat for a lifetime of chicken curry.

Run 100 vs Fly 10: Fly for sure

I’m really excited to finally be an instructor at SLSC after many years of being unable to work because of immigration issues, but now that I have completed my first year at Dalhousie University, I can finally work in Canada! I will be teaching CANSail 1 this summer and I cannot wait. I just completed my first year at Dal where I am studying Political Science. I enjoy listening to music, reading, and hiking.

After 2 summers teaching tennis, I am beyond thrilled to be returning to SLSC. I have just finished my first year at Dalhousie University in a co-op commerce program. In my spare time, I like to bake cookies, read, watch Netflix, drink tea, run, go for walks, and pet my adorable dog, Doolie. Starting off a very nervous 8 year-old myself, I hope to make everyone’s first time on the water a comfortable and amazing experience. Can’t wait for what’s going to be an incredible summer!
