EYC is proud to announce our high school sailing program for 2018-2019 school year with Indian Creek School. High School sailing closely parallels the collegiate sailing format. High School sailing focuses on both fleet racing and team racing. Indian Creek School (ICS) will train at the Eastport Yacht Club (EYC) under the direction of the Junior Fleet as part of the Central League of the Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association (MASSA) District.
ICS will participate in a number of regattas throughout the seasons which run from September to November and March to May. The end of each season culminates in a District Championship and in the Spring, for those teams that qualify, the National Fleet Racing Championship (Mallory Cup) and National Team Racing Championship (Baker Cup).
In addition to daily coaching at practices, EYC will rotate coaching duties with ICS for weekend regattas. Junior Varsity teams typically travel to local events lasting one day. Varsity teams attend local events and travel to venues requiring overnight stays several times a season. Organization of all local and overnight trips is the responsibility of ICS, team captains, and parents.

High School Assistant Coach
Ivy grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and started sailing in 2007 through her club's junior El Toro program. In high school she competed for Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation (PYSF), based in Redwood City, CA. After graduation, she took a gap year, and attended the Oakcliff as part of their first class of Saplings, gaining experience in all things big boat: match racing, distance racing, and boat handling. After Ivy's gap year, she went on to continue match racing (competing at the U.S. Women's National Match Race Championships twice), became very active in San Francisco's J105 fleet, and started coaching Optis. After transferring from her community college in the Bay Area to CSU Monterey Bay, she became involved with a Henderson 30 program in Monterey, and a Flying Tiger 10m program in San Francisco. She graduated in May 2017 from CSUMB with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. She worked at Severn Sailing Association as 2018 Spring High School coach and Summer RWB Opti Coach. She is a familiar face at EYC as she also worked at EYC this summer as an Opti Tot Instructor. We look forward to having her continue on as Indian Creek’s HS Sailing Team Assistant Coach and helping to grow the Middle School and Adult Sailing Programs.
Some of her recent sailing accomplishments include winning the ORR B division (and a Rolex) at Rolex Big Boat Series on a Sydney 38, competing at Express 27 National Championships for the third year in a row, and competing for the first time at Long Beach Race Week.
