Course Instructor: Capt. Christoph A. Winter

Captain Christoph A. Winter has his roots in East-Friesland near the frigid North Sea Coast of Germany and holds a doctorate in Experimental Nuclear Physics. Over the last 25+ years he has actively cruised and raced almost everything from small 8 foot dinghies to 50 foot catamarans. His background in the sciences has allowed a very thorough and methodical approach to think about and teach the concepts of sailing and navigation. Working as a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain and Certified Sailing Instructor for the last 12 years, he received the ASA (American Sailing Association) national Outstanding Instructor of the Year award twice while taking countless students on day and night voyages up and down the Northeast Coast of the US and through the Caribbean. Chris' primary areas of instruction are all subjects of navigation as well as the Bareboat and Advanced Coastal Cruising curricula.
