Aimee Nance

Aimee grew up in San Diego and spent the majority of her childhood on the beach. Born into a family of landlubbers who get sick at the sight of boats, she is newer to sailing yet eager to learn and excited to be serving as first mate. 

Having recently finished up her high school teaching credential she is excited about boat schooling her girls. She hopes that this new adventure will force her to become fluent in Spanish, something she wishes she had done while living in Southern California for most of her life. 

You can follow Aimee's adventures with her family on Sailing with Terrapin.
