About Martin Spizman
Martin got his start sailing small boats in the lakes of Southern California, eventually moving to the Bay area in search of more sailing opportunities. Within weeks of arriving he was volunteering at the Hyde Street Pier Maritime Museum where he got his first taste of Tallship sailing on the Museum's flagship, the schooner Alma. Since then, he has set foot on nearly every Tallship that called the San Francisco Bay home, and even crewed as a First Mate on a few.
Along the way he became an American Sailing Association (ASA) certified instructor so he could share his love of sailing with students. He now works for Davis Instruments in Hayward as a Test Engineer and Technical support representative for both their Marine and Weather product divisions.

Pathways into Sailing
Your host - Ros de Vries
Ros stepped up to sailing keelboats in 2018--and has since tried every trick in the book to get rides, including walking the docks with beer, volunteering for non-profit organizations, joining crew lists and yes, racing. She now owns a beautiful Santa Cruz 27 - Medusa #145 - which she sails competitively. You can follow her adventures on instagram.com/yarrcat
Ros is the 2022 Commodore at Island Yacht Club (iyc.org), where she helped produce the first virtual IYC Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar in 2020. Island Yacht Club runs a year-round racing program from Alameda Marina, CA, as well as training and social events, both in-person and online.
