Carter Simard - Program Director, Lead 420 Race Coach
This will be Carter's fifth season as an instructor and coach at the Chapoquoit Yacht Club - and in his view, learning to sail is about a lot more than learning to manage a boat.
"The sport of sailing is unique, in that each day provides sailors with a wide variety of new challenges that allow for continuous improvement and growth," he says. "The constantly changing conditions enable sailors to fine tune their ability to adapt and thrive when faced with new experiences."
An alternative rock and electronica fan, Carter spends a lot of time in New Zealand, where he engages in match racing. In the off season, he's a student at Northeastern, where he studies psychology and criminal justice, with an eye towards law school
