Jeanne and Jeff Sinclair first visited Rincón to surf and visit old friends in February 2006. They had sailed a 50’ sail boat through Mediterranean and across the Atlantic. Jeanne and Jeff are both accomplished sailors with more than 50 years experience between them. After multiple visits and scoping out the local area, their desire grew to relocate to Rincón to start a sailing school. Youth & adult sailing lessons in coastal Rincón began in fall of 2007 out of the Black Eagle Marina. Since it’s inception, the school has been mobile, with boats on trailers.
Jeanne has worked in the sailing industry since 1994 as a sailing instructor, coach and a director of sailing programs for many clubs. Jeanne holds a Master of Science in Education and is currently a member of the US Sailing National Faculty. In addition to being a certifying Instructor Trainer for Small Boat Level 1, 2, 3 & Keelboat disciplines Jeanne is a US Powerboat Instructor.
Thanks to the local community and all of our visitors for the continued support over the years. We look forward to sailing with you.
