Nuri was born in a small coastal town called Marmaris in Turkey and developed a love for the sea at a young age. He grew up sailing the clear waters of the Mediterranean and learned the ins and outs of life on the water.
Nuri moved to the USA 30 years ago and was sidetracked from the sea and sailing for a long time, this made him realize that he needed to spend more time on the water, to learn more about sailing, and share this passion for sailing with others. He made it his goal to become Captain and Sailing instructor about 7 years ago. After some research, he found St Augustine Sailing who offered American Sailing curriculum. He first was a student with St Augustine Sailing, then participated in the crew program for a year to get the remaining time on the water that he needed to become a USCG Captain. Now Nuri is a USCG Captain and Sailing instructor with us here at St Augustine Sailing.
