Point Loma Yacht Club Kristan KelschCommodore: Kristan Kelsch

Kristan has lived in San Diego since January of 2012.  Prior to moving to San Diego, Kristan lived in Northern California where she ran a successful business and estate planning law practice since 2004. 

While attending UOP, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California, she frequently sat on the banks of the river watching with envy as boaters of the Delta river- ways would zoom by.  One day she decided to purchase her first vessel, a 19 foot ski boat. Kristan owned this vessel for about 10 years until she sold it.

It has always been her life-long dream to live near the ocean and so in January 2013 she and all of her belongings moved to San Diego.  She has since been working continually to re-build her law practice here and wanted again to become an integral part of the boating community in San Diego.  One day in August of 2013 she was invited to go sailing with a group of people for a friend’s birthday. 

She was actually hesitant to go… not knowing the captain or the boat!  The rest as they say is history. The captain of the sailboat was Mick Moore who also is on the board of PLYC. From this point forward Kristan formed a liking for sailboats and quickly became friends with Mick and his wife Manisha. 

Soon after, Kristan joined PLYC and became more and more involved in the club’s activities and the boating community.    Kristan raced last year as a crewmember during the beer can races on Accord.  Accord finished first in their class for the series.  Kristan also joined Staghound on their sail around Todo Santos and their race to Oceanside. 
Kristan is looking forward to assisting PLYC remain a successful club and is eager to help PLYC members to enjoy all the waterways and experiences on the water San Diego has to offer as she currently does.
