Who is InformedBoater Academy?
|Rob MacLeod created InformedBoater.com in 2008 to investigate, develop and share learn to sail information and skill development. This followed a 40-year career in teaching sailing and corporate learning design. During that time, Rob MacLeod contributed to the development of both Canadian learn to sail program through SailCanada (formerly the Canadian Yachting Association and to the early development of the American Sailing Association (ASA) as their first technical director (1983-4). |
|Having the opportunity to work with sailing instructors from across North America, Rob continued as a student of how people learn to sail and continues to teach on his own boat - a 1981 CS36 Traditional, in the Bay of Quinte and 1000 Islands (lake Ontario), on charter boats in the Islands (Caribbean and Bahamas) and on owners' boats - customized learning. |
Our new website brings together the print, electronic and video tools that Rob has developed and tested since 1975. With the Learn to Sail: The Basics online learning course launched and actively being used, Rob has turned his attention to Learn to Navigate and Learn to Cruise - available in 2019.
