My name is Tristan Loescher and I grew up sailing in Bermuda. I was fortunate enough to spend my summers sailing and racing an array of small dinghies in Bermudas Waters before traveling abroad for further education.
I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s degree in Biogeosciences. My studies were focused the physical geography of the world, as well as the social geographies of the places I have lived throughout my studies.
I have since returned to Bermuda to pursue a career on the water teaching Bermuda’s youth how to sail through the Americas Cup Endeavour Program.
During the weekends, I keep busy working with Sanctuary Marine as a commercial fisherman, or as a charter boat captain/ crew. We charter deep sea fishing voyages, as well as other in-shore trips with Sanctuary’s diverse fleet of boats.
I thoroughly enjoy my occupation, and love navigating Bermudas Costal Waters! A few years ago I was was fortunate enough to sail from the Bahamas to Bermuda on the Lord Nelson- a mixed ability tall ship with crew from all over the world. I relished this experience thoroughly, and have been eager to do more offshore sailing ever since!
As a Bermudian working with the America’s Cup Endeavour program, I have been not only coaching young sailors how to race, but getting increasingly into racing myself. Growing up watching the Newport to Bermuda boats arrive in port was always an amazing experience, and it has always been a dream of mine to participate in this race!
I am a highly motivated, patient person equally capable of working individually or as a team member. I strive to further myself in my current field of employment as a captain/ sailing coach. I am well versed on boats, and would prove to be an asset on any sailing voyage!
I appreciate the time you have taken to review my letter of interest. I look forward to hearing from you.
