Sarah Downey

Hello! My name is Sarah Downey and this will be my first year working at Hingham Yacht Club, as well as my first summer as a sailing instructor. I will be attending Hamilton College this Fall and have volunteered as a junior instructor at Scituate Harbor Yacht Club for the past two summers. I have been sailing since the age of 10 at Scituate Harbor Yacht Club and with Duxbury Bay Maritime School this past summer as part of their race team. I also sailed in Duxbury Bay Maritime School's Fall Sailing Program for the past two years, since Norwell does not have a sailing team of their own. I have sailed 420s for four years and have competed in many local regattas, in addition to the Buzzards Bay Regatta this past summer. As a 420 sailor, I was a crew and especially loved trapping. I look forward to meeting all of the sailors and having a great summer!
