Dane's Coaching Bio
US Sailing Level 1, 2 and 3 Certified. Red Cross CPR/First Aid Certified
I've been coaching since 2012. I started coaching like most young coaches, working for my local youth program, in my case that was Santa Barbara Yacht Club. I began with Opti's, but post my 29er sailing career I began coaching several local 29er teams. I was lucky enough to coach a few teams at 29er North Americans the summer of 2015, which is when Leandro Spina, head of US Sailing's Olympic Development program, first noticed my coaching and offered me the position as the US Sailing Team's Youth High Performance Head Coach for the US Olympic Development program. I coached the USA team at Open 29er Worlds the summer of 2016 in Denmark as well as the ODP clinics leading up to that event.

Quinn's Coaching Bio
I'm currently a "player/coach," my most recent gig briefly working with the US Sailing's 49er FX Olympic team Helena Scutt and Paris Henken. From 2013 through early 2015 I was the head Opti coach for the Santa Barbara Youth Foundation Sailing Team. Because of my 29er campaigning I've had to coach more sporadically and so currently do private coaching for both Opti and 29er sailors. I'll be sailing the summer of 2016 as part of the Youth Olympic Development team and attending 29er Worlds in Denmark with my Salty Brother coach, Dane.
