Course Listing - by Instructor

We are currently offering courses taught by the following instructors:

Meredith Allen

Meredith has enjoyed one design sail boat racing for close to 25 years - starting out on a Tanzer 16 (her first major purchase after graduating college). Sail boat racing became a passion and through the years she has either crewed and/or skippered the Flying Scot, Lightning, J24, and Laser sail boats in one design races and crewed for non one design races on the Beneteau 31s and S2 7.9s sailboats.

Most of Meredith's sailing experience has been either on the Flying Scot or Lightning sailboats, having crewed in either the foredeck or spinnaker trimmer positions in the following major regattas: North Carolina Governor's Cup, The Flying Scot Great 48, Flying Scot Nationals, and Flying Scot Midwinters, Lightning Midwinters, Lightning Nationals, Lightning South Americans, and Lightning Worlds.

Due to the harsh conditions associated with racing daily for weeks at a time, she has been forced (doctor's orders) to retire from competitive racing. Now, she leisurely sails, excited about sharing her knowledge and experience with others (but still trims those sails for optimal performance).

Pam Hansen has over 15 years in the health and wellness arena. After obtaining her degree in nursing she began work as a Wellness Director at a variety of retirement communities in Southern California and then made a switch into the corporate world where she worked as a sales representative for pharmaceutical/ medical supply companies. After moving to Davidson 12 years ago, Pam stopped working in favor of raising a family. It was during this time that Pam became passionate about yoga and martial arts.

She is certified as a holistic living coach and helps clients achieve optimal health and vitality through nutrition and lifestyle modifications.

Pam and her family of boys (2 children, husband and 2 dogs) stay active with different sports throughout the year but spend as much time as they can in the mountains of Virginia where they really enjoy nature.... canoeing, cycling, hiking and just hanging out.
