Mark joined the IJS board in 2017, having enjoyed two seasons of 420 racing in the IJS Adult Racing program. A native Michigander, Mark started sailing in his early teens, learning on an Aqua Cat —“The Plumber’s Nightmare”. He became hooked on sailing after a delivery from the Virgin Islands to Lake Superior in 1980. He now does the occasional offshore delivery, and enjoys bareboat chartering, having covered most of the US east coast and a good bit of the west coast of Scotland. He also races inland scows in Michigan.

“There are few endeavors that call upon a wider range of skills than sailing—especially sail racing. I’m delighted to be a part of IJS, where we offer young people, regardless of their backgrounds, the opportunity to develop confidence and abilities that will serve them in almost all aspects of their lives.”
