Todd & Louise Frye
Owners and Founders, Bonneville School of Sailing and Seamanship. Established in 2007, sailing out of the Provo Marina, Todd brought with him a strong connection to sailing. In 1974, he was introduced to the magic of the Pacific Ocean by a fellow classmate who owned a Herreshoff 28 foot "S" boat.
That affinity for "wind in his sails", carried forward to retirement in 2007, when he could realize his dream, and share the magic of sailing with others. Todd received his U.S. Sailing Instructors Certification at OCSC in 2014, and Bonneville became an accredited U.S. Sailing School in 2016. In 2018, Todd became an SLC (Sailing License and Credentials ) Assessor from Santana Sailing out of Long Beach.
Sea breezes have carried Todd as far as way as Colon, Panama and Croatia. He currently sails out of the Provo Marina, Long Beach, San Diego, the Canadian Gulf Islands and the Caribbean.
Louise is the cheerful voice you hear when phoning Bonneville to ask questions or schedule a Sunset Sail. She is very knowledgeable about "all things wind" and would like nothing better than to assist you with your sailing dreams and aspirations. And when things get highly technical, like explaining the details of getting your International SLC license to bareboat charter in Europe, she is your "go to" sailorette.
Having 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.
