Why Dartmouth?

Besides the obvious academic prestige, Dartmouth had the most welcoming student body, none of whom came off as pretentious.

How long have you been sailing and what got you interested in sailing?

I have been sailing since I was 8. My dad got me into sailing when I would do saturday series with him in Hereshoff 12.5.

When I sailed with Graham Landy we won Youth Champs, Orange Bowl, BBR and i420 North AMericans. When sailing with Ian Liberty we won Youth World qualifiers and competed at the Youth Worlds in Turkey.
