Blue Water Sailing School's owner David Pyle spent five years as a full-time sailor, captaining massive vessels on four transatlantic crossings and countless trips throughout the Caribbean. Today, he mostly helms from his desk as he oversees the education of future captains at his school, letting his 10 expert instructors take care of hands-on education. Many of them boast a certification and recognition as top instructors from the American Sailing Association, the same governing body that certifies the school as whole. As a group, they have many areas of expertise and teach students everything from basic sailing techniques to offshore passagemaking, which involves advanced navigational techniques such as asking porpoises for directions in their language.
