[QUOTE=moorehal;562452]I am the 2010 Training Commodore at Pentagon Sailing Club. I am a retired Surface Warfare Officer (cruisers, destroyers, frigates). I am also a member of Navy Pax River Club, and participated for three years as the Officer-in-Charge of Navy 44s for the Naval Academy's offshore training program. I have several thousand miles of offshore sailing experience (mostly the Ches Bay, Bermuda, New England triangle). I am also a member at Navy Pax Sailing, where I am boat captain of the Navy 44 MK I “Valiant”.

So what qualifies you to teach sailing?

When I'm in that area, I'd love to visit your club and facilities. Sounds like a first-rate operation!

My .02 ain't worth much, but I'd like to say, I'm a member of Pax River Sailing Club, and learned alot from them. It was an ASA course, but, the instruction was done by ex-military/military/DOD personal, and really hooked me back up with sailing. The P S C inst. should be just as well! Just my .02

In the late 70s I was the Training commodore at San Diego Naval Sailing Club.
Was a Boatswain Mate in the Navy and worked commercially since retiring in Jan. '79. Once owned a Catalina 30, the wicked Ex sold it while I was working at sea.
Am now an instructor for those who want their 100/200 Master/Mates USCG licenses. And now looking for a live aboard Sail boat to travel with.
I figure that I'm as qualified as any of those civilian org's. Maybe more so...
But you know that Retired Boatswain Mates are very very knowledgable.
