Sailing Instructor


My name is John Gilmour. I grew up sailing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I started sailing in the local sailing program when I was 6 years old and racing single handed boats when I was 8 years old. Since I have sailed and raced many small boats from your basic Opti or Laser to the most high performance dingys like the 49er Olympic class boat and Australian 18ft Skiffs. I have sailed and raced Keel boats as well from J24 to TP52. I have competed in national and international events. On top of this I have worked in most areas of the sailing industry. I have work for boat riggers, sail makers, and boat builders. I have 1000 of miles on the ocean in races and on boat deliveries. I have also helped run and manage logistical and technical matters for top sailing programs ans syndicates in the SF Bay Area.
