Dale BrowneHaving learned the basics of sailing with my dad as an 8-year-old, my love for the sport has grown for decades now. Doesn’t matter if I’m racing ‘round the buoys’, observing a student pull off a flawless tack and jibe for the first time, or sailing across the sea with friends, I’m where I want to be.
A captain and instructor with Bonneville for 10 years, I have wonderful opportunities to share this sport with others. Treasured memories and bonds invariably grow as I introduce sailing skills to enthusiastic learners of all ages.

Melanie EvansMelanie started her sailing career on the big blue ocean. She was lucky to be a member of the moving crew on her brother's 46 ft catamaran from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl to Montego Bay, Jamaica in the spring of 2018. She fell in love with sailing and all that comes with it on that journey. She came home from that trip, took lessons from Todd, and bought herself a 25 ft O'Day. She can be found solo sailing or with a crowd a few times a week on the lake. She loves to talk about sailing and help others realize their dream of sailing whether that is around the world or across Utah lake!
