Growing up on the Northern California coastline, Ian has always felt close to the ocean. He spent his summers learning to sail, and eventually became the lead instructor for the program where he first started sailing. Ian moved across the country in search of warm weather and will be graduating this year from Eckerd College with a bachelors in Marine Science. When he’s not studying or working as an EMT, Ian spends his time surfing, sailing, swimming, and windsurfing in the warm waters of the gulf. He hopes to share is love and respect for the ocean with the campers at Sail Caribbean this summer!
