Captains & Staff

Tyler Martin

As the owner and fearless leader of SPSC, Tyler has been working tirelessly to get his idea for an affordable and comprehensive sailing school off the ground.  Tyler came to sailing in his early twenties at Cal sailing Club in Berkley California and was instantly hooked.  He bought his first boat and began living aboard and learning everything he could in 2008.  Tyler got his captains license in 2010 while cruising the east coast and has been teaching and sharing his love of sailing ever since.  With a dedicated and experienced staff behind him, Tyler will be focused on teaching courses, running charters, and passing on his passion for the sport to everyone he can.

Kyle Jacobs

Kyle has been dedicated to the marine trades since high school. He trained to be a Marine Technician at Marine Mechanics Institute and worked for a Portland boat yard for over six years. Kyle started sailing in high school as well, when he bought his first boat (a $500 Chrysler 22) named “Juliette” and quickly became passionate about the sport.

Kyle and Tyler met by chance when Kyle sold a sailing dinghy to Tyler (a Paceship P-12). A friendship quickly formed between the two California natives and shortly after Kyle bought Tyler’s first boat “Nomadic” a Paceship Chance 32/28.

Kyle currently holds a USCG captains license with sailing endorsements as well as holding Multiple ASA instructor certifications. There is a good chance Kyle will be your instructor for most introduction to sailing courses as well as Basic Keel Boat, Cruising, and Racing.
