Kate Pepler - Head Coach

Kate Pepler won the Pamela Lerch Cup in 2015,  Sail Nova Scotias 2016 Instructor of the Year. 

“I grew up on Toronto Island where as a kid, it was either attend sailing school or canoe camp. I did both, but fell in love with sailing. I completed my levels at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, and the Queen City Yacht Club. I started coaching as a volunteer when I was 15, and haven't stopped coaching since! 

I have coached Wetfeet, Intro Opti, and Intro 420 at Queens Quay Yacht Club (now Harbourfront Sailing). I then started coaching on Toronto Island at the Island Yacht Club, where I ran the Opti Learn to Race program. Throughout all of that I taught adults at St. James Town Sailing Club. Teaching adults really helped me grow as a coach, and I continue to coach adults at BBYC! This will be my fourth year running the Sailing School at BBYC, and I wouldn’t want to be coaching anywhere else.”
