April 2017 – William Howard

How long have you been sailing and how’d you get involved with CBSC?
I started sailing Optis in a summer camp with cbsc when I was 10 just to try it. I really enjoyed it so I decided to join the sailing team!

What boats have you sailed?
Started in Optis, now I sail 420. I have also sailed laser.

What is the best thing about sailing?
The best part about sailing is having to always adjust to the wind and the waves to go fast! I also really like the strategy involved in racing.

Any dreams or ambitions you have as a sailor?
To go on a trip on a bigger sailboat; maybe down to the Caribbean or Hawaii!



What would you tell someone who is curious about learning to sail?  
It’s never too late to start!  if you’re not sure about joining, try it out for a week in the summer to see how you like it.

Some of the coolest things you’ve seen out in Comox Bay?
Seals, sea lions, orca whales, dolphins, once I even found a message in a bottle
