Michael Barrientos
Top Charterer
Michael began sailing as a child and later raced 420s and Lasers into his first year at the US Coast Guard Academy.

After taking a long break from his sailing endeavors, Michael returned to his passion with Modern Sailing in the spring of 2018. In a short time, he has completed ASA courses through 106 and 114 and chartered an impressive array of boats from each of our fleets.

MSC is proud to have played a role in Michael's phenomenal sailing journey and we look forward to his participation in the Recreational Race Program .
Nichole Ortiz
MSC Ambassador
The votes are in and our members have chosen Nichole as this year's MSC Ambassador! Nichole is ASA certified through 104 and has recently joined the ranks of MSC's Club Skippers as our first female Club Skipper.

Nichole participated in the 2018 Leukemia Race Regatta and helped to spearhead the development of MSC’s Wind & Women racing team.

MSC is thankful for Nichole's leadership, support, and many contributions to our members. We look forward to another great year of sailing and further expansion of our Wind & Women sailing program!
Gregg Golembeski
Top Student
Gregg began with MSC's Captain's Special fast track and has not slowed down since.

After earning his Bareboat Cruising certification, Gregg has gone onto completing ASA 105/106 , ASA 114 , and the Recreational Race Clinic .

While Gregg has taken almost every course that MSC offers, he continues to stay involved, chartering, participating in Club Sails, and joining our L ocal Expeditions .

We are blown away by Gregg's commitment to learning and passion for sailing!

Featured Boat : Carita
The C&C 32 is a graceful, seaworthy, Canadian-built racer-cruiser capable of zipping around the buoys during club races or heading out for short-range cruises on the Bay.

Although she sports a racy profile, this compact yacht is not without ample space below deck.
Stiff and responsive, she is an excellent choice for sail trim practice. With the traveler located in the cockpit, Carita has a comfort rating of five sailors. Find out for yourself why Carita is a Silver Fleet favorite among many employees and club members. You won't find a better performer for the money.
