Head Instructor, Messing About in Boats
Messing about in boats goes back to Taylor’s earliest memories of childhood growing up in Central Florida, the land of one thousand lakes. She went to Sea Camp during the summers in the Florida Keys, going on overnight sails and exploring reefs—summers that fostered her love for sailing. She attended the University of South Florida where she was able to sail during her free time while studying Historical Preservation and Education. Living in Port Townsend has given her the opportunity to engage in a maritime community and tap into a wellspring of knowledge that she hopes to help pass along to future generations through education and adventure.
