Eugenie Isabelle Russell

Eugenie is a fully licensed 100T captain, as well as an ASA and US Sailing coastal cruising certification instructor. A sailor, teacher and entrepreneur, she has been sailing for more than thirty years. Being pushed into breaking waves in an Optimist at the age of seven might seem like a rough introduction to sailing to some, but to Eugenie, it was the beginning of a long and exciting career on the water. Eugenie raced, crewed, delivered and moved yachts and sailboats throughout high school and college. The day she graduated from college, she embarked on her professional boating career, sailing and skippering sloops, ketches, Oysters and a Nautor Swan 68 through locations around the world.

Eugenie then moved to San Francisco, where she focused both on running boats and teaching sailing skills. She has run four sailing schools—the Spinnaker Sailing School in San Francisco, the City of Oakland’s youth sailing program, the J World Sailing School program Currently in Puerto Vallarta, and the Vallarta Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program. Eugenie operated private charters, provided sailing instruction, did deliveries, and captained boats while she ran the programs above. She also founded the company J Concierge, a support team for J/Boat owners. Today, in addition to delivering boats worldwide, Eugenie teaches sailing and yachting to anyone who has the desire to let the dock lines go. She is the coach for the Vallarta Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing Program, where she is training todays youth to compete in Olympic-level competitions. She speaks French, Spanish and English, and is dedicated to making students understand and love sailing.

Eugenie has been presented with the Spirit of the Ha-Ha Award for helping rescue her crew after their boat collided with a whale. See the article below for more:

At the end of each Ha-Ha, the Spirit of the Ha-Ha Award is presented in honor of Steven Swenson, skipper of the Seattle-based Hallberg-Rassy 46 Trinity, who sailed the entire Ha-Ha course with his wife and two kids in 2004, then died in a tragic free-diving accident off Costa Rica a number of months later. This year’s recipient of the award was a foregone conclusion, and was presented to Eugenie Russell, the fun-loving, charismatic, but above all, extremely competent 35-year-old skipper of the Alameda-based J/120 J/World, which sank after colliding with a whale on the first leg. Although Russell insists that she was just doing her job, members of her crew — as well as Coast Guard investigators — said she responded heroically to the situation, which resulted in all five aboard being rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter without serious injury. Capt. Russell received a thunderous — and much welcomed — ovation from the 350 people at the awards ceremony.
