About

My name is Grant and I’m the creator of Nomadic Sailing. I remember the first time I ever stepped foot onto a little sailing dinghy back in school with one of my best friends at summer camp and since then I’ve been traveling the world exploring new places and meeting some of the most amazing people.

I consider sailing my most active hobby and after many years decided to get the International Certificate of Competence by International Yacht Training (IYT) Worldwide. IYT Worldwide is the global leader in sailing certification, superyacht crew training, and dive boat maritime training. If you’re interested in learning how to sail, definitely check them out.

Would you look at that handsome devil.

I started Nomadic Sailing to help beginners more easily learn everything they need to start sailing, to provide experienced sailors with the best online resource for staying up-to-date with their skills, and to document my adventure of becoming a Yachtmaster.

Thanks for visiting Nomadic Sailing and I hope you get a lot of value out of it!
