"I’m honored to have been selected as a member of the ILCA Executive Committee and look forward to contributing to the best of my ability.  My sailing career began in Lightnings in 1976 at Leatherlips Yacht Club in Columbus, OH when I was a senior in college, and has continued as a member of Pymatuning Yacht Club for nearly 35 years.   I’m very excited to be serving with the most excellent team of Bill, Joe, David, Julio and Laura, and I’m pretty sure I’ll learn so much that I’ll  end up coming away with more than I give!  Thanks so much for this opportunity!" ~ Bertie
