Program Director I have such fond childhood memories learning how to sail at HPYC and am excited to be returning as the Program Director for the third year. For 10 years, I ran the Tabor Academy summer sailing program. I am a teacher by trade and have raised 5 children who love sailing. I am committed to making our program one that is engaging and fun for the whole HP community – e.g. by popular demand, adult sailing classes are back for the second year! Looking forward to a fantastic summer!

I am the captain of the varsity sailing team at Tabor Academy, and I will be continuing my sailing career at Cornell University next year. I can’t wait to meet you all soon!

Sr. Instructor My name is Tiernan O'Kane and I've been sailing since the age of 8. I started out sailing for fun in Sunfish. In 8th grade, I joined the high school sailing team at Sandwich where I transitioned to sailing 420s. I am currently a captain of the Sturgis sailing team. I love sailing for the moment when the boat is trimmed perfectly, flying on the surface of the water and you feel on top of the world. I am excited to return to HPYC this summer to share my sailing experience.

Jr. Instructor My love for sailing began when I was first introduced to an opti when I was 4 years old. I really enjoy sailing and racing in regattas because it has allowed me to gain a sense of independence on the water which has helped me work on my confidence and being calm under pressure. It has developed my leadership skills, but it has also enabled me to widen my love for water sports. I also started kiteboarding, which has added another dimension to my knowledge of the wind and water!
