Biz “Seabizcut” Wallace
“The Toyon Bay Yacht Club is the greatest yacht club in the world because everyone who sails here is part of the TBYC ‘ohana. We have a unique culture that can’t be found anywhere else and is constantly growing with the contributions and energy of every camper. Beyond teaching students how to sail, our program guides students to be independent and self-confident while developing important problem solving and communication skills. At the Toyon Bay Yacht Club, campers can be themselves and discover how much fun sailing can be!” Biz started working for Guided Discoveries in 2012 as a deckhand on board the tall ship Tole Mour. It was there she realized her passion for teaching kids about the ocean and sailing in costume. She returned as a member of Sail Staff in 2016 and has been a die-hard yachtie ever since!
A native of North Carolina, Biz fell in love with the ocean on family trips to Pawley’s Island, SC. After moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California, Biz fell in love with sailing while working on board the school’s classic wooden schooner, Atlantas. She has since spent the last few years sailing around the world on educational tall ships including the Spirit of New Zealand and Sea Education Association’s brigantines.
Biz has a bachelor’s degree in Design and is working towards a 100 ton captain’s license.
