Paul Davis

Paul Davis moved to Traverse City after graduation from Western Michigan University.   In 1982 he met Dan Spyhalski (long time GLSCo sailing school instructor) and Dan proclaimed “You need a boat.”   He has been sailing and racing on a variety of boats including the Lightning ‘Holeycow!’ ever since.  Paul has done numerous deliveries in the Great Lakes as well as a delivery from Manzanillo, Mexico to LA and is a veteran of numerous Port Huron to Mac and Chicago to Mac races.  In addition to his two sons, he has a daughter that also enjoys sailing and cruising.  When he’s not working, you’ll find Paul and his wife, Kay, sailing on ‘Holeycow!’, or riding his classic motor cycle in Leelanau County.   Currently Paul and his two sons crew for Dan on his Cal 40, ‘Spyke’.  Paul has a 50 ton USCG Captain’s License and is certified to teach ASA classes 101, 102, 104, and 105.
