Director: Mike Sopher
Mike, a San Diego
native, got bitten by the sailing bug back in the early 80’s.
Living in Mission Beach with a Prindle 18’ Catamaran parked right
across the street on the bayside meant many fun-filled days single hulling across the bay, while
learning the basic dynamics of sailing. In the early 2000’s Mike purchased his first sloop, a
Pearson 30’, then followed it up with a Catalina 34’ and realized that sailing for him, was going
to be a lifetime passion.
Being a fulltime Realtor, Mike enjoys sailing weekly, racing with
friends when possible, and many other outdoor activities such as mountain biking, paddle boarding
& surfing, camping & hiking, scuba and staying fit.
Having served two terms on the Clairemont Town Council, Mike hopes to
utilize his experience to the betterment of the PLYC. Expanding membership, streamlining events,
and bringing more value to the members of the PLYC is on his agenda…
