We are thrilled to have Elizabeth Shaw O’Toole onboard as our new Sailing Director. Elizabeth has a compelling background in competitive sailing and event and race management.
Prior to joining Indian Harbor, Elizabeth worked with the Volvo Ocean Race and was (and continues to be) a contributor and US board member to the Magenta Project, an international organization focused on accelerating women in sailing. Elizabeth was also the Training Program Director for Oakcliff Sailing in Oyster Bay NY, a high performance training center geared toward offshore sailing, foiling, Olympic classes and match racing.
Elizabeth is a proud Canadian with an enviable sailing background. By the time she turned 30 Elizabeth had logged roughly 38,000 coastal and ocean miles.
But it is Elizabeth's combination of that sailing experience along with her coaching/training, event promotion and management and race committee experience that makes us so excited to have her with us. Elizabeth looks forward to connecting with members and their families as she works alongside staff and volunteers to invigorate all facets of our sailing programming.
