Lilah grew up in Bayville, New York and started sailing Opti’s in elementary school. She now sails 420’s in Oyster Bay for the composite WaterFront Center high school team. For the past three summers in a row, she has gone down to the Caribbean and lived on a sailboat, both monohulls and catamarans.
This summer she enrolled in Oakcliff’s Acorn Inshore Program where she raced keelboats for the first time. She did pit on a Swedish Match 40 in a Grade 4 Clinegatta where she got first-hand coaching from Dave Perry.
