My name is Margaret Pommert.
I'm a Pacific Northwest native, though I lived, worked, and sailed in many other parts of the country/world.
I work in the local boating industry as a captain and instructor, and also actively volunteer to promote women and youth in boating, and boating safety.
While I work for or with many of the organizations listed here, the purpose of this website is not to sell you anything. Regardless of your budget, I hope you'll find resources here that will get you out on our local waters, having fun and being safe... following your boating dreams anywhere they take you!
Race or cruise. Pacific NW or worldwide
Catamaran or mono-hull
Want you to have fun, be safe, on the water!

2019 will be our 4th year of teaching this fun and very popular day-long course! Here's a video from 2017.
With all the time I spend on boats, I'm often asked what my favorite boat is. My answer is always the same; "Whatever boat I'm on!"
