Dillon Coppersmith


Dillon is a long-time sailor and youth educator who lives in northern Virginia. As a teenager he lived aboard a sailing vessel with his family for five years, eventually completing a global circumnavigation. He has worked as a sailing instructor ever since, most recently leading the sailing program on Marine Corps Base Quantico. In college he was a member of the William & Mary sailing team where he occasionally competed but preferred introducing new sailors to the sport. Dillon’s passion for mentoring young people has bled into other interests as well, as he works as a varsity esports coach at his alma mater during the fall and winter. Dillon is excited to bring his knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to Sail Caribbean this year!
