About our team

Meet our crew

Mark Evans


I was introduced to the world of boating in 1997, when I experienced the Sea of Cortez Cup in La Paz, Mexico with the previous owners of Windworks! That trip changed my life, and because of it, I became the owner of Windworks in 2013.

Welcome to Windworks Sailing & Powerboating.  Very honored having US Sailing and Powerboat certifications available at beautiful Shilshole (Seattle) and Cap Sante Marinas (Anacortes)!  Thank you to our wonderful office and dock staff for the opportunity to serve the Pacific Northwest Sailing and Powerboat community.

Co-Owner & Marketing Manager

I’m having fun using my many years of sales and marketing experience from various corporations and non-profits to promote WWSC.   I love that we help people to achieve their dreams of adventure on the water.   I’ve spent more time on hiking and running trails with ‘Lilly’ and ‘Chester’ but since 2013, I have also enjoyed learning all about sailing and power boating.

Dock Manager, Certified Professional Yacht Broker, US Sailing & Powerboating Instructor, USCG 50 Ton Masters License

I enjoy instructing aspiring or experienced boaters how to master their vessels with the goal of making sure every client is fully confident in their skills prior to leaving the dock. I found my passion in the maritime industry and love helping others experience their own adventures out on the water. You’ll find me on the docks with clients or out on the water ensuring our fleet of yachts are at peak performance.

I look forward to sailing with you soon.

Oregon native, new to boating and I absolutely love it! I’ve become US Sailing BBC Certified to guarantee the best service for our fleet. I try to make sure each vessel is maintained and equipped for each class, charter and clinic. Happy to provide information about the fleet and their mechanics. If you need any assistance, I’m your guy!
