Inês (Ee-ne-szj) is a past Mate with AQ and a recent graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a major in Environmental Studies and a Portuguese minor. She holds a US Sailing Level 1 Instructor Certification and has taught sailing since she was 16 in San Francisco Bay. Inês first began sailing as a middle-schooler at summer camp and quickly took to the excitement of being on the water with only the wind to power her sails. She loves the joy of teaching somebody a new skill, especially when it is something as exciting as sailing. Inês also surfs, plays guitar, and enjoys long “zen runs.” Inês has spent a lot of time in Portugal, where her family lives, and feels deep gratitude for the perspectives her dual nationalities have given her. Inês is US First Aid and CPR Certified, Wilderness First Aid certified, and NASBLA Safe Boating certified. She is thrilled to return to AQ this summer and once again share her knowledge and passion for the ocean, environment, and travel.
