Activity Co-Chairs

 

Jeffrey Wood
Joined the SCC in 2005 and is a certified windsurfing instructor. Windsurfing since 1982 - the ever changing interaction between the wind, water and board that first got me windsurfing keeps me coming back year after year.


Roger Jackson

Discovered board sailing by accident, but quickly became addicted to both the mesmerizing sensation of light-wind sailing and the exhilarating dynamics of surfing across the wave tops. Have been assisting/teaching for about 10 years, and can't think of a better way to spend the warm summer evenings than gliding across Ramsey Lake.
