Having taught science classes in public schools for
more than 32 years, Ron retired from the classroom
and began teaching on the water. Combined with his
joy of sailing, teaching it is a dream turned true
Ron began sailing in 1969 with the purchase of a
16-foot X-class boat built by the Johnson Boatworks.
When his son had grown to be a teenager and wanted
more speed, they purchased a 16-foot Hobie Cat and
learned how to fly with the wind. Following that
phase of his sailing career, Ron settled into the
comfort of larger, drier keelboats that allow him to
share those times with family and friends, together
on the water.
