Gerry Thompson has been a sailor for almost 40 years, initially racing a lot on Lake Ontario in the LORC series, Susan Hood Trophy Race, and the Lake Ontario 300. More recently he enjoys cruising and delivering boats. He likes navigation and has been told he’s a natural teacher. He enjoys teaching CPS Boating 2 and Boating 3 with his fellow instructors. (“We have a strong bench.”) As an electrical engineer, the risk of electricity near water gives Gerry the willies so he teaches electrical safety in Boating 3.
