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…
