They are: Bill Healy (Yale); Ali Blumenthal (Dartmouth); Bill Ward (St. Mary’s of Maryland); Morgan Wilson (NY Maritime); Charles Higgins (Tulane); Chris Lash (Boston University) and Conner Blouin (St. Mary’s of Maryland).

MISSION:
The mission of the Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic is to provide accomplished high school sailors with intense, high quality sailing instruction by top collegiate coaches.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CLINIC?
Three and a half days of intense, on the water coaching, by successful college coaches followed by personal debrief sessions. This program consists of lectures and on-the-water drills including tactics, strategy, sail trim, boat speed, etc. Coaches utilize video footage, archival footage, chalk talks, land demos and on-the-water exercises. Additionally, our coach to boat ratio is low with one coach for four boats and attendees have the opportunity to work with all of our coaches.
