4 Youth Sailing Camp 2013 This year our summer youth sailing-camp was our most successful yet reaching well over 100 kids in the span of 8 weeks, enrollment pushed 16 in a couple of the weeks. Much was learned, much fun was had, and all 8 Optis took it in their stride. HMBYC is bringing on a great new generation of sailors. Those who made things possible include Lucy Gillies, Dave Morris, Kelly Pike, Women s Sailing for providing scholarships and benefits for our young women sailors and instructors, Lisa Hernandez for constant on-shore support, scores of dedicated parents, and the team of instructors. Our 2013 Instructors were: Brett Baron (Junior Instructor in Training), Kiera Cullen (Junior Instructor In Training), Nina Hipkins (Junior instructor in training), Elias MacLeod (Junior Instructor), Lauren Orloff (Junior Instructor), Emma Reynolds (Junior Instructor in Training), Tanner Rhodes (Junior Instructor in Training), Rachel Wilson (Junior Instructor), and last but not least Hannah Tuson-Turner, HMBYC s inimitable Head Instructor and Sailing Program Coordinator.
