Jacob Collier

Jacob Collier has had a rather unconventional journey into the world of sailing. Born into a family of sailing enthusiasts, words like “ballast” and “jibing” were often a part of dinner conversations. Ever the rebel, Jacob did not take an active interest in sailing until he was 13.

The unfortunate demise of an uncle, led to Jacob participating more keenly in their family’s voyages. There was a deep desire to celebrate the life of a man he adored so much. In doing so, Jacob discovered a connection to his uncle and fell in love with sailing.

It became more of an independent activity as he grew older. Having learned to sail on a dinghy as a teen (an ever-dependable wayfarer), he slowly made his way to more complicated rigs with age, including a Tayana Vancouver 42.

These days Jacob sails a Hallberg-Rassy 44, having covered almost 6000 NM. While he’s made several voyages, his favorite one is the trip from California to Hawaii as it was his first fully independent voyage.

In the future, Jacob hopes to make the trip from California to Florida via the Panama Canal. He also hopes to one day have his own Corbin 39 as it was his uncle’s favorite sailboat.
