Mike Kohl holds a 100-ton USCG Captain’s license and is a four-time recipient of American Sailing Association’s Instructor of the Year. He learned to sail in Newport Beach at age 16 and later completed a three-year cruising voyage to Central America, through the Panama Canal, and circumnavigating the Caribbean Sea. Mike has also sailed the East Coast from the Florida Keys to New York City and across the North Atlantic from New York to Holland. He has delivered multiple motor yachts the length of the West Coast between San Diego and Seattle.
