     Alexa Dalzell - Head Coach

Thanks for wonderful Kate Pepler, I was able to to shadow her and learn from the best. Back in 2015,

Kate won the Pamela Lerch Cup, Sail Nova Scotias 2016 Instrutor of the Year as well as Sail Canada's

2016 Sail Training Program of the Year. 

“I grew up in Bedford right by the water as a kid, and started sailing out of BBYC at age 7, I stillremember my first day there. I sailed there for about 5 years, completed my levels. At age 13, I decided I wanted to race a bit, and so my twin sister and I sailed and race out of the Halifax, Sqaurdon for a few years. At 16, I worked my entire summer as a JI at RNSYS, and at 18, I taught sailing for the frst time in Chester, I immedateily fell in love with coachng and havn't stopped coaching since! Back in 2017, I decided I wanted to coach sailinig where I grew up and switched to BBYC, this is my 4th summer in Bedford.

I have coached Wetfeet, Intro Opti, Intro 420 and adult learn to sail. This will my first summer not teaching Adult learn to sail and this will be second year runnng the Sailing School at BBYC.
