Evan Langford

2016 High Performance Acorn

Evan Langford, from Montego, Jamaica, doesn’t know life without the ocean. When he’s at school in Connecticut he always keeps a small piece of rope in his backpack “to remember [his] love for the sea.” His first sailing experience started in Optis, like many sailors, but instead of moving on to dinghies he instead graduated to J22s. Sailing isn’t that much of a big deal in Jamaica, but he takes every opportunity possible to go sailing. Evan came to Oakcliff to expand his sailing and boat work skills.
