Tanner Gee, Youth Sailing Director

Hi all, My name is Tanner Gee I am the Youth Sailing Director here at Coyote Point YC. I grew up sailing Tara's, Lasers, FJ's, 420s and many other small and large boats. I fell in love with the sport at a young age here in the Bay Area and aside from the two weeks it took to learn the basics, I started competing in all sorts of boats. I have had the privilege of competing in High school and College on the east and west coast. For me Sailing is an awesome way to get around on the water, scratch a competitive itch, and a cool way to meet new people and see the somewhat unknown sailing community of the bay area, that resides in the many Yacht Clubs here! I'm looking forward to meeting you all and sharing with you the awesome experience that is sailing!

Timmy Gee, Assistant Director

Hi, I’m Timmy Gee and am the assistant director at CPYC. I learned to sail in San Francisco in FJs, Lasers, and Teras when I was 13. After learning about the prevalence of sailing, I began competing regionally on my high school sailing team in the FJ. I eventually fell in love with the technical aspect of the sport and found joy in spending time on the water. After sailing practices I would watch higher level sailors train in the Club 420 and was determined to compete with them. I later joined their club team and competed nationally and internationally in C420s and I420s throughout highschool. I currently compete on the Bowdoin Sailing Team and look for every opportunity to get on the water as well as help kids and adults get involved in the sport.

Nati, Coach

I enjoy sailing of all kinds and have been involved in the sport for nearly a decade. I have experience with Optis, FJs, Lasers, and C420s. As a US Sailing certified sailing coach, I enjoy helping kids and teens learn sailing and take part in this wonderful sport.

Dylan, Coach

Hi my name is Dylan, I started sailing the FJ when I was in middle school and quickly realized how much I loved sailing. I then moved on to the c420, i420, and more recently the 470 where I have competed on the local, national, and international levels. I am off to college at the University of Oregon where I look forward to continue sailing on their team.
I have been coaching for three years and I love being on the water and helping kids find their love for sailing!
