I am Rylee Wernoch, a senior at Hobart and William Smith Colleges where I major in Biology and Environmental Studies. I grew up sailing at Metedeconk River Yacht Club in Optis, Lasers, 420s and Lightnings. I’ve instructed at Island Heights Yacht Club NJ, and, over the last three summers I have worked in Geneva as a researcher and as a sailing instructor to protect and celebrate the Lakes. I am a member of the William Smith Soccer team and I studied abroad in South Africa last year – where I got in some sailing! I am so excited for the opportunity to return to SSA this summer and share my passion for sailing!
