Eoin Duffy

Eoin Duffy started sailing as a teenager on Dublin Bay, Ireland in what he describes as “sometime in the last century.” He joined the local sailing club as a cadet member and gained experience racing and cruising with the older members in a variety of sailboats. After settling into a one-design class, he spent many years campaigning the British designed racing dinghy, the GP14, throughout the UK and Ireland. When not racing, Eoin took advantage of the opportunity to do some extensive cruising in larger boats around his home waters.

He began teaching as a volunteer instructor with Les Glénans, a French sailing club/school which has bases throughout Europe. After moving to the USA, he worked for some years as an instructor with the California Sailing Academy in Marina del Rey. In recent years, Eoin has held monthly classes as the chief instructor with the San Luis
Yacht Club sailing school.
