Welcome to Team SailFit!

We appreciate your interest in joining Team SailFit.  We began our youth team in January, 2011 after Coach Kurt Taulbee completed his contract with the Clearwater Yacht Club Youth Team.  Kurt is an experienced Laser sailor and coach and is excited to teach the team members all of the lessons he has learned over the years.  Meka is an experienced fitness and nutrition coach with unique, effective methods for sailors.  She has a strong focus on proper nutrition both on and off the water.

SailFit keeps a focus on safety and the coaches keep their certifications in CPR and First Aid current.  SailFit Incorporated carries full liability insurance.
