RYAN
Hi! My name is Ryan Odeja and I am going to be a senior at Oconomowoc High School. I have been on my high school sailing team for the past three years and I sail Club 420s and C scows in the summer! I am so excited to meet everyone this summer! 

JP
My name is JP, and this year I am in my senior year at Arrowhead High School. I grew up sailing on Pewaukee and have competed in the Opti, X, Laser, E's and A's basically anything I can get my hands on.  I also have been a member of the Arrowhead High School sailing team, sailing 420s and Lasers.  I’ve had the opportunity to compete in some great regattas across the midwest and even some high level High School events.  I love sailing and am looking forward to bring my knowledge and enjoyment of the sport to others.

BREANNA
I first began sailing butterflies at a summer camp about 11 years ago and began racing dinghies about 2 years ago. I currently attend Old Dominion University majoring in political science with a minor in psychology and pre-law. I am also on the varsity sailing team, primarily as a crew, and sail Cs on Nagawicka in the summer. I am looking forward to a fun summer on the water!

TESS
My name is Tess and I just finished my junior year at Hamilton High School in Sussex.  I began sailing X-boats in the summer of 2016 and though I started later than most, I fell in love with the sport instantly.  That fall, I joined the Milwaukee Youth Sailing Team and have been sailing scholastically ever since. This will be my second summer working as an instructor for Optis/Kinderprams and I am so excited to spend this summer out on the water!

CARLY
My name is Carly, I am going to be a sophomore at Pewaukee High School. I first started sailing at PLSS in the beginner Opti class. My love for sailing grew when I joined the Milwaukee Youth Sailing Team. I currently sail X boats, M17’s, 420’s and I look forward to coaching kinder prams this summer!

JACK
My name is Jack. I grew sailing on Pewaukee Lake and I’ve been sailing for almost 10 years. I started sailing Optis through the PLSS program in 2009 and then moved on to X boats, which I also sailed through the program. In addition to the X boat and the Opti, I also sail in the M17, MC, Laser, 420, and E fleets. I am also currently on the Arrowhead Sailing Team and I can’t wait to teach this summer. I hope to spread my passion of sport and see you all out on the water!

MAX
My name is Max, I am a senior at Arrowhead High School. I grew up sailing on Pewaukee and have sailed in many fleets including the Opti, X, and have competed on many scows (Mainly C's and E's). This is my third year coaching here and I am excited to further improve many young sailors skills. I have been competing in regattas around the midwest for most of my life and have had the opportunity to see sailing on all different levels. I love sailing and have found a passion in giving back to the next generation of young sailors!
