Navy Intercollegiate Sailing

Navy Intercollegiate Sailing (4-2-12)

Burman is in his sixth year at the helm of the Navy intercollegiate sailing team in 2013-14.

The 2012 season was a successful one for the Navy Intercollegiate Sailing team, led by Burman. The coed squad finished 16th at the ICSA National Championship while the women's team placed seventh at the ICSA Women's National Championship.

The coed squad has finished in the top 10 of the ICSA Coed National Championship three times during Burman's four years as a head coach.

After a distinguished junior sailing career, which included representing the USA in the Optimist South American Championship, Optimist European Championship and 420 World Championship, Ian went on to sail in college at Georgetown University where he finished second in the Sloop Nationals during his senior year. While in college, He coached at Severn Sailing Association during the summer and had great success working with the junior sailors there and his teams regularly dominated Chesapeake Bay competition.

Upon graduation, Ian moved to San Diego, Calif., where he took up coaching full time with immediate success.

In his first year of coaching high school sailing at Coronado High School, the team accomplished an unprecedented sweep of all three high school national championships. During his time in Southern California, Ian also coached sailors who won the 420 Midwinter Championship, Sabot National Championship and FJ National Championship.

Ian then moved back to Annapolis and took over as the Junior Program Director at SSA. In four years there, he built the program to become a major player on the national scene. In addition to being director, Ian also served as head coach of the high school sailing program, where his teams improved from being middle of the pack to perennially in contention for medals at the nationals, which was accomplished with the Severn School team placing third in his last year of high school coaching.

For the past few years, Ian has been working at Stagg Yachts managing and coordinating the racing in the M 30 and Farr 40 one design classes.

Ian is an Annapolis native and in Annapolis with his wife, Leah, and their son, Trey.
