James Gibson - Instructor
Originally from Queensland, Australia, James has a real passion for teaching. He has been working professionally as an instructor for over five years in roles that varied from beginner classes to advanced catamaran techniques.
Growing up on a farm, he was introduced to sailing at the age of 11 and was instantly hooked. He learned to sail on a Hobie 16 and raced competitively in Hobie 16, Taipan 4.9s and Hobie Tigers so brings a new multihull skill set to the team.
In recent years, he has worked in Greece, for the Royal Brunei Yacht Club in Borneo and in Melbourne, Australia.
James brings a really fun and positive approach to the program and is already teaching the kids some new sailing lingo... Not only is he excited to be teaching sailing, his goal is also to enable the kids to gain confidence and essential experience in, on and around the water.
He loves kitesurfing, AFL, roast pork and Vegemite but wouldn't be seen out with coriander!
James will be the lead instructor for all beginner and intermediate classes, FunSail sessions, holiday camps and KATS
