An Interview with Pamela Healy

  1. Why do you want to be a member of US Sailing’s Board of Directors? I want to give back in a meaningful and impactful way.
  2. How can community sailing centers, yacht clubs and other sailing organizations collaborate with each other more on key initiatives to grow sailing? We need to create a positive and trustworthy connection between US Sailing and sailing organizations. We also need to have a vision and roadmap for those that cannot afford boat ownership.
  3. How can these organizations and other sailing industries integrate with their local communities to provide more awareness for prospective new sailors? I think continuing to support programming and initiatives that outreach and expose our sport as an enjoyable sport and hobby will be beneficial.
  4. What can US Sailing do to help facilitate these partnerships? US Sailing can be hands-on with positive messaging and leadership.
  5. How have US Sailing’s programs and services impacted your overall sailing experience? I enjoyed the educational opportunities and the support when I was campaigning for the Olympics.
  6. Is it important for sailors to be members of US Sailing? Yes!
