JC’s Sailing Bio


Goal-setting and achievement, drive and desire, and unwavering focus have enabled John to rise to the very top of beachcat competition. By pursuing a rigorous physical training program and constant improvement in boat-handling skills and tactical awareness in the largest off-the-beach fleet in the world, he was able to collect every major U.S title in spinnaker catamaran racing just four years after setting the goal; six North American Championships, three consecutive Tybee 500 Championships, two US Multihull Championships, and podium European and World Championship finishes. All of this success came through team building, fitness, and the ability to adapt to subtle differences between platforms, sailing conditions and tactical situations.
