Where the Passion Begins
Sailing Program Director
Hey there, Coyote Point Yacht Club family and friends! My name is Kevin Kirberg and I am excited to be returning to CPYC as the sailing program director for my 2021 summer. In the off-season, I work for a local construction company as a carpenter as well as a ski coach on the weekends at Squaw Valley. I fell in love with sailing when I was a young child living in Redwood Shores. I grew up sailing mostly for fun in Optis, Lasers, and Cal 20s . When I got to high school, I started crewing for my father on his Olson 25 competing all around the bay. I have always found sailing to be a beautiful sport, one that I am extremely passionate about. I am looking forward to another fun-filled summer with all of you!
