​This class is for kids who enjoy sailing, enjoy some thrills, and want to try out more high-performance boats. They’ll learn to sail and race 420's, Sunfish and Seniors. 420's students will learn to plane in their boats, to surf the waves out in the Sound, and to sail as fast as possible. When ready, they will use trapezes and learn to fly spinnakers. While the pure thrill of adrenaline sailing is one goal of this class – depending on COVID guidelines for the summer –students will race in local regattas and we will host / travel to local yacht clubs weekly.

Program Director

I have such fond childhood memories learning how to sail at HPYC and am so excited to return as the Program Director. I am a teacher by trade and have raised 5 children who love sailing. For the past 10 years, I have been at Tabor Academy, where I was selected to revamp their summer sailing program.

I am committed to making our program one that is engaging and fun for the whole HP community. I look forward to meeting the people I don’t know and reconnecting with old friends!
