Offshore Sailing School said Rob Brooks, formerly of Austin, Texas, joined the school’s executive team as director of operations.

“His background and successful career in sailing education and racing makes Rob the ideal leader in developing new programs, faculty, branch and resource management as we continue to grow our business,” Offshore chairman and founder Steve Colgate said in a statement.

Brooks will oversee all aspects of the company’s systems and programs, working closely with the Colgates and the management team.

He has more than 32 years of professional sailing instruction and coaching experience. Brooks began sailing in the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s youth program at age 7, and he later directed the program.

In the early 1980s he began offshore racing on IOR boats and had top finishes in the Newport to Ensenada Race (Presidents Cup winner); Transpac; Pac Cup; Coastal Cup; and San Diego to Puerto Vallarta regattas.
