Michael Sabourin

2014 High Performance Acorn

Michael Sabourin recently discovered his love of skiffs after joining the 29er community. He had previously sailed lasers, but skiffs became a major part of his life. The skiff community allowed Michael to travel to new destinations outside of California, which he had never experienced before. This helped him to improve his sailing skills and meet new people. Michael learned about Oakcliff’s High Performance program through the 29er community, and he believed that Oakcliff would help him enhance his knowledge of skiff sailing by learning how to sail other skiffs and sail in a new environment. He is also a member of the Newport Harbor High School sailing team.
