Director: Mike Kirchgestner

michael kirchgestnerMichael has been a member of the San Diego yachting community since buying the Bordeaux Breeze (a Hunter 376) in 2004. After a brief visit to Mexico, he settled in Chula Vista’s California Yacht Marina and lived on the Breeze until 2010 when he met and married Mary Reynolds.

It was in Chula Vista that he joined the local yacht club and began his sailing adventure. Learning to sail a 38 foot boat required a lot of help from other members of the club which led to joining the sail and racing fleet. During this period Michael also served on the club’s board of directors and was Commodore in 2013.

Since Mary recently retired from teaching, they have been spending time remodeling their Condo but still have time to do a little travel as well as make a weekly trip to the boat for some relaxation. 

Michael is looking forward to this next year at PLYC and enjoying the club events while meeting more of the club’s members and working towards insuring that the club continues to have the welcoming atmosphere it has today.
