Tyler Braun is from Brunswick, Maine. He graduated from Penn State in 2010 and is currently working as an engineering consultant for the hydropower industry in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
While at college, Tyler served as Commodore of the Penn State Sailing Team, skippering FJs and 420s (and the occasional Colgate 26). He has spent the last two seasons at Susquehanna Yacht Club, jumping from Lightning to Lightning before settling into a steady crew position with Carol Park. He started racing keelboats at Havre de Grace Yacht Club last season.
Tyler and his crew are incredibly excited and grateful for the coming season with the Lightning class.
