About Steve Charlebois
Steve has been an avid boater for over 19 years and has extensive training in sailing and windsurfing. He joined a boat club and took formal sailing classes with Soling keelboats and other pocket cruisers. Steve, his wife, and his two daughters caught the "sailing bug" and sailed as often as they can. Most of their sailing is on beautiful Lake Champlain in Vermont.
In the Fall of 2005, they purchased their current sailboat, 1986 31' O'Day sloop, and enjoyed their fifteenth season with this boat. Steve would spend the entire summer on the vessel if he could. They enjoy having family and friends come out sailing with them at every opportunity. Over the years, they have learned the many limitations of boating and cruising first hand.
Steve is very passionate about all aspects of boating and would love to apply his technical problem-solving skills to provide you with a solution to your boating challenge.
Steve volunteers with an organization called Healing Winds Vermont, which provides respite sailing for cancer patients and their caregivers to relieve stress and anxiety through quality time together on the water. To learn more about Healing Winds Vermont and Steve's involvement, click here.
Steve has written several boating articles for the Mallets Bay Boat Club Newsletter. These articles are on the Blog Page of this website. The "Boating Safety" article was featured in the 2008 "Summer Lake Guide Lake Champlain" insert, as well as in the Milton Independent, Essex Reporter, St. Albans Messenger, and the Colchester Sun newspapers.
Steve has certification in the following Boating Courses:
- The United States Power Squadrons The Squadron Boating Course
