Greetings! I’m Capt. Brian…”Let’s Go Sailing!”
Originally I’m from a small community in Central New York where I spent many days on the lakes, rivers and canals in all types of boats. The boating season is short and the winters are long and cold that helped make the decision retire to a more tolerable climate.
I came to the Tampa Bay area after a long search for a suitable location to establish Broad Reach Charters, Inc. Now settled in Clearwater, Florida. This location provides easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and protected sailing on the Intra-costal Waterways.
As a career Paramedic I functioned at many levels including formal and field training, quality assurance and administration. The field training was a challenge that I looked forward to as you could see measurable improvement as students gained confidence with their skills. More importantly I had a front row seat to many mishaps that were avoidable because of poor planning and inadequate preparation. These life’s lessons have been applied to “NOWHERE TO BE” and by exceeding United States Coast Guard requirements.
Professionally, I currently hold a 100 ton Masters License with Sailing and Commercial Assist Towing endorsements.
I have been sailing for to many years to count and I continue to find it adventurous, peaceful, exciting and Fun! My passion is to share these experiences with you.
