Charlotte Ide

Hello! My name is Charlotte Ide and I just completed my first year at UMass Amherst. I am currently a member of both the Isenberg School of Management as well as the Commonwealth Honors College. I learned to sail at the Hingham Yacht Club when I was eight years old, and since then I have developed a passion for racing Optis and 420s. I have participated in a multitude of regattas, both big and small, including the Buzzards Bay Regatta and the Hyannis Regatta. During my 420 experience I was usually a crew, which I preferred over skippering because I was able to use the trapeze and fly the spinnaker. My favorite part of sailing is competing at large regattas and I cannot wait to work at the club for my second year as a senior instructor!
