Statement from Sarah Lihan

I bring my career and business skills and real-world understanding to connect with decades of experience as a US national team member, Olympian, offshore sailor, match racer, and pro sailor. I’ve also coached all levels of athletes for decades, and I have a deep understanding of all facets of the sport. Most importantly, sailing is part of my soul, and I’ll do anything to give back to the sport that’s given me so much.
