Bora Gulari

Bora Gulari started windsurfing when he was only four years old because his parents both surfed and he wanted to join them. While Bora was working on his degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, he would often make jabs at the bartender of the hotel he worked at that windsufing was better than sailing. Eventually, Bora was invited to go boat racing.

"I loved it," said Bora. "I became obsessed."

Bora followed that obsession to two Moth World Championships and a 2009 US Sailing Rolex Yachtsman of the Year award. In 2016 he was invited to join Quantum Racing for the 2017 season. Bora is currently very active in many one design classes including the Moth and Melges 24. He brings incredible sailing and design experience to the Quantum team. In collaboration with lofts in Traverse City and Muskegon, MI, Bora is uniquely positioned to assist the Great Lakes sailor.

George Peet

George Peet grew up sailing on the Great Lakes. In college he was a three-time All-American ski racer. After college, Peet left ski racing to pursue sailboat racing full-time. Peet has dedicated the past 20 years of his life to racing sailboats professionally and working on the design of cutting-edge technologies. He sailed around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race, is a two-time World Champion, and holds multiple world distance sailing records and national and regional titles in competitive one-design fleets and individually in the Moth Class.

When not racing professionally or on the hunt for a new speed record on his Moth or ice boat, you can find Peet tackling the humbling challenge of racing 100-year-old wooden sailboats (NMs) every summer in his hometown of Harbor Springs, Michigan, or coaching youth ski racers at the local ski hills.
