The Storm Trysail Foundation thanks all the volunteer speakers, boat owners, coaches and the staff of the Storm Trysail Club, Larchmont Yacht Club, and Junior Sailing Association of LIS for making this Seminar a big success.  The juniors were welcomed by Larchmont Commodore Rob Snedeker and Storm Trysail Commodore Nick Langone. Over 200 junior sailors and their instructors attended classroom, simulator, and dockside sessions in the morning, and sailed on 22 borrowed boats in the afternoon. IMG_2331Our guest speaker was Boris Hermann from Hamburg, Germany- navigator of  “Maserati”, the upgraded Volvo 70 that is now breaking world sailing records.  For the first time, we offered a “Level 200” advanced program for 28 juniors who sailed on Patriot, Strider and Troubador.  Video coverage was provided by Lee Reichart with Whitney Kneisley driving.   Maureen Koeppel photographed ashore and afloat. Special thanks to Storm Trysail Club’s Marcy Trenholm and Whitney Kneisley, and the Foundation’s Lisa Schinella. Special handouts and the “Winch Video” courtesy of Joe Cooper.
