Mark Barrett, the founder of Cape Cod Sailing School, is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain and a US SAILING certified instructor. Born and brought up on the Connecticut shoreline of Long Island Sound, he went sailing for the first time at the age of nine and has been hooked ever since. A veteran of over forty yacht deliveries, he has cruised extensively along the New England coast, both single-handed and with crew, in a multitude of boats ranging from nineteen to fifty-five feet. After working in boat yards for more than twenty years as a sailboat rigger and service technician, he takes great pride in maintaining our boats, rigs and all onboard systems in tip-top shape so our students can concentrate on having fun and adventure out on the water.
“I’m really proud to be associated with US SAILING and there is no doubt that we offer the best sailing courses in the industry.”
