He sails Lightnings on the Potomac River regularly with Fleet 50.

Ian Turnipseed

was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He is currently attending Loudoun Valley High School as a junior and plays soccer as a hobby.

He is very competitive in recreational games such as badminton, ping-pong, and racquetball. I guess you could say he’s handy with the paddle.

Sam started sailing Lightnings with fleet 50 in the fall of 2006.
