Swiss Adventure Camp insructor Adam Beaudin has great pleasure sharing his sailing passion with camp participants. He makes sure that you will not only learn the ropes, but that you will have the right techniques as have a great time setting your sail to the right course. Adam spent more than 10 years of his youth focused primarily on racing sailboats and windsurfers. He spent a summer as a sailing instructor at the International Sailing School teaching sailing by day and racing every evening and weekend. It's that level of commitment made him one of America's top junior sailors and he brings it to every one of our camps, making him one of our most prized teachers.
