As Russell describes it, sailing in NYC is his "dream job". Russel is brand new to Atlantic Yachting and we're glad to have him. He is a recent graduate of Tulane University in New Orleans and will be joining us as a full-time Sailing Camp Instructor.
Prior to joining us, Russell was a Senior Counselor and instructor for three years at a sleep-away Summer camp in North Carolina, teaching sailing as well as beginner to advanced kayaking.
Originally from Spartanburg, SC, Russell grew up sailing his family's Beneteau, as well as Optimists and 420s. Russell is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain and is instructor certified by the American Sailing Association up to the 104 Bareboat Charter level.
