Watch out sailing world, here we come!  This past weekend, three of us in Ontario participated in an Instructor Evaluator training weekend.  Two of us are looking to become evaluators of instructors and one is moving up to a Senior Instructor Evaluator.   The rest of the motley crew in the picture were the facilitators.  I am very much looking forward to this new role of nurturing in new sailing Instructors and guiding them to a level of professionalism that we are all aspiring to.  I will still be out there teaching all the usual lessons and sailing the high seas on crazy adventures…..this is just one more facet of my professional sailor life.
