Ron Pressley

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 for him.

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.
