Charles Ullman is a sailor who was born and raised in Southern California and grew up in the marine industry. As the son of legendary racer and sailmaker David Ullman, Chuck was raised learning the ropes on the water, first learning sailing in sabots, followed by racing dinghies and 29er skiffs. In high school and at St Mary’s College of Maryland, he traveled across the country racing against the top varsity sailing teams and competed in national championships while working summers as a yacht club instructor.
Chuck got his start in the marine industry by working at a local marine hardware store while also learning the family business in the Ullman Sails loft. During late afternoons and at weekend regattas, he worked coaching the young sailors of the Long Beach Wilson HS and Chapman University teams. He often cruised to Catalina on his own classic restored Islander 32 and raced in the local summer series. His crewing experience includes the Ensenada race and the J70 North Americans. Recently, he earned his captain’s license and works as a skipper and instructor at a Southern California charter sailing club.
Chuck enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience of boating with beginning sailors up to advanced racers – anyone who has the same enthusiasm for being out on the water that he has.
