As a self-proclaimed pirate, Kyle has been sailing with us for 8 years now and has lots of experience with inland and open ocean sailing. He graduated from George Mason University in 2013 with a degree in Criminology, Law, and Society and a minor in Psychology and currently is a background investigator. His passion for the outdoors and learning new sports is what draws Kyle to Northern Virginia Sailing School. From skiing down the most extreme slopes of the Northeast, to almost every water sport he can find out there, Kyle has tried them all. His love for sailing began in 2010, when Kyle first achieved his ASA 101 certification. Soon after, Kyle has completed his USCG Captains license as well as numerous ASA certifications.

This fall 2017, she started her journey at medical school to become a Physical Therapy assistant. Her true love for the outdoors lies not only within her own adventures but also in inspiring and teaching others. As a certified ski instructor, ASA sailing instructor, PADI OW Diver, and a licensed USCG Captain, Courtney is always looking for the next skill that she can learn and teach.

Spencer

Spencer started his sailing endeavor back in second grade when he won a scholarship for a youth sailing camp at Cabrillo Yacht Club in San Pedro, CA. It all took off from there, and he completed his PADI OW certification when he was 10 and his Advanced certification a few years later. After moving back to D.C., he has cruised the Chesapeake on 40’+ deep-draft sailing vessels and crewed on racing yachts near Annapolis. He achieved his official ASA certifications (up to 104) at Woodbridge Sailing School with Cameron, Danny, and Christina. He enjoys meeting others and sharing his passion for sailing.
