Willie McBride

Willie McBride grew up sailing with a passion for being on the water, and now teaches kids of all ages how to sail competitively.  Willie is based in Santa Barbara, California, and coaches and prepares local youth for various competitions, including the International Sailing Federation (ISAF).  He invited us to follow him, his brother, Davie, and some of his team for a day of practice before an important qualifying race.  Two of the kids on Willie’s team, Dane and Quinn, were tied for second place going into the last race of the regatta, but came back strong in the last lap to clench first place, and will be representing the US in Ireland this summer for the ISAF annual championship!
