Peter Twining has recently become a member of the IJS Board of Directors. He now serves as its Treasurer. He joined the Board after a few years of racing in 420s in the IJS Wednesday evening series. Sailing, racing and cruising have been a central part of his life since his teenage years on Long Island Sound. Over the years he has raced Blue Jays, Lightenings, Stars, J24s, J22s, J105s, Sunfish, Hobie Cats and other one design sailboats and has also cruised extensively in Maine waters and the Caribbean. During the late 1960s and early 1970s he earned a spot on the US Sailing Team and competed for selection in the Tempest class to the 1972 Olympics in Germany. He now seeks to instill an interest in sailing and boating in local youth through the IJS program. He believes from his experience that sailing and boating handling builds confidence, leadership and teamwork. He is excited to be part of the IJS and committed to the success and growth of its program.
