Biography

Having grown up sailing small boats, Peter Isler understands the many facets of this internationally respected sport. A renowned educator, he has taught sailing to people of all ages and experiences, including the U.S. Olympic team. Additionally, Peter Isler played an important role in developing the U.S. Yacht Racing Union's sailing program and helped found the American Sailing Association.

Peter Isler has been involved in every America's Cup since winning it as navigator aboard Dennis Conner's Stars & Stripes in 1987. Peter Isler served as analyst for ESPN's coverage of the America's Cup in 1992 and 1995. In the 2002-2003 Auckland Cup Campaign, Peter both sailed with Stars & Stripes and served as analyst for Outdoor Life Network's coverage of the racing. He navigated Roy Disney's sloop, Pyewacket, in the 2003 Los Angeles-to-Honolulu Transpacific Yacht Race, and then went on to break the monohull record in the 2003 Newport-to-Ensenada race by nearly an hour. During the summer of 2004, Peter Isler navigated Martin Brauns' sloop, Winnetou, to a first-place overall finish in the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii.

A popular motivational speaker, Peter Isler draws analogies from his success in sailboat racing to success in business, entertaining, and motivating diverse groups, including a host of Fortune 500 companies. Peter Isler often incorporates video of sailing into his presentations, bringing the sport to life. His book, At The Helm-Business Lessons for Navigating Rough Waters, shows why it is essential to be able to change course quickly, how to "stack the deck," and how to plan for the unexpected. In his presentation, based on the book, Peter Isler applies the strategies required for putting together an excellent sailing crew to the world of business. He translates the secrets of success in the fast-paced world of grand-prix sailboat racing into a series of specific lessons that managers and business people can apply to their day-to-day jobs.

Groups interested in building their team spirit, communication, cooperation, and camaraderie often turn to sailing to provide a fun team-building experience. In both business and sailing, building a successful team takes years of planning, training, practice, and cooperation, with an absolute commitment to winning. Peter Isler helps corporations or groups produce a memorable sailing experience, either on his home waters in San Diego or anywhere else the sea meets the shore. Team-building sailing competitions provide both entertainment and valuable lessons. Together on a boat, co-workers must abandon pre-existing relationships and solve problems as a team.

A former Collegiate Sailor of the Year at Yale University, Peter Isler is president of Isler Sailing International, Inc. a sports marketing and television production company.
