Captain Jerry Diercks

Jerry started sailing just 12 years ago right here at the Seattle Sailing Club.  He immediately caught the bug and soon after, started racing.  For the past 10 years he has spent a 1/3rd of every year sailing the waters of Puget Sound, first on a beautiful Alerion Express 28 and now on the J/105 Delirium.  Before sailing took over his life, Jerry received his MFA in Theatre Directing from Rutgers University and worked as a director and non-profit manager.  Now Jerry enjoys leading diverse groups of people into their first sailing and sailboat racing adventures.
