- Building American Leaders Through Sailing -

Ivy Binns

2012, 2015 Sapling

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ivy was constantly immersed in water activities, but only took to sailing in 2007. After learning the basics  in El Toros, she joined the Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation, a high school sailing team, and has been competing ever since. Her sailing path has spanned a multitude of classes, from high school dinghies to competing in the US Women’s Match Race Champs in San Francisco and Chicago.

When not sailing, Ivy is studying Business Administration with a focus in Marketing at California State University, Monterey Bay, working with kids at an afternoons homework help program, or spending time with her family in the Tahoe area. She is also getting ready to spend her next academic year in Frankfurt, Germany.

Ivy’s goals for the summer include refining her match racing skills, expanding her offshore experience, and fine tuning her repair skills.
