Our Crew


Dustin Frye

Establishing Wrightsville Performance Sailing in 2014 with the goal of expanding the sport in Wrightsville Beach, Dustin is excited to bring a high-energy sailing experience to southeast North Carolina.

Following his graduation from UNC Wilmington in 2011, where he worked to reinvigorate the Sailing Club as President, Dustin accepted a position as a sailing instructor at Bald Head Island, North Carolina. His passion then led him to the British Virgin Islands as an instructor on Virgin Gorda, sailing everything from Lasers to Cruising Sloops and Catamarans in the vivid Caribbean water.

With the Tar Heel State calling him back, Dustin founded Wrightsville Performance Sailing and is ready to take you and your crew for a sail in the picturesque waters of Wrightsville Beach. Fully Coast Guard licensed and experienced, Dustin delivers an unforgettable experience, see what others have to say below!
