Youth Sailing Foundation of Indian River County is pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Morgan as its new Sailing Director. Morgan grew up sailing at the historic Riverton Yacht Club on the Delaware River. Starting in Sunfish, she quickly moved up to racing C-420’s. Morgan worked as Sailing Instruction Manager at the Cooper River Yacht Club throughout her high school and college years. There, she learned the skills required to plan and administer sailing instruction programs that included community sailing and outreach to inner city children from Camden and Philadelphia. Along the way, she became an accomplished sailor and racer.
Most recently, Morgan worked summers as Sailing Director at Brant Beach Yacht Club on Barnegat Bay in New Jersey. She oversees a sailing program that encompasses teaching beginners through coaching racing teams. With responsibility for curriculum development, teaching and staff supervision, and liaison with Club parents, officers, and management, Morgan brings a wide range of skills and experience to Youth Sailing Foundation.
