16 Feb Conrad Volle
Conrad Volle, 23, grew up sailing on the choppy waters of the Great South Bay at Wet Pants Sailing Association, a club founded by kids who couldn’t afford to join a yacht club. Inspired by the spirit of camaraderie and independence, he worked to develop his skills as a sailor, racing Optimists, Sunfish, 420s, and Flying Scots. As Wet Pants’ racing coach, he found his stride coaching, planning the logistics of getting kids and boats to regattas, and packing the perfect snack bags. Conrad comes to Oakcliff with very little offshore, match racing, or even keelboat experience, but he hopes to fully explore all of the opportunities Oakcliff has to offer, on and off the water.
