The heart and soul of a great clinic is great coaches, and we’ve been fortunate to have some of the best college coaches in the country. We look for coaches who not only have a track record of collegiate success, but also are known for their positive enthusiasm and interest in helping sailors reach their potential.

We are thrilled to announce the coaches for the 2018 Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic! They are: Bill Healy (Yale); Ali Blumenthal (Dartmouth); Bill Ward (St. Mary’s of Maryland); Morgan Collins (NY Maritime); Charles Higgins (Tulane); Chris Lash (Boston University) and Conner Blouin (St. Marys).

Here is a list of all our coaches for the last five years:
