Meet Meredith Killion: 

It started with a call from a high school friend on a Friday night in 1998. Could I race Blue Jays with him in Niantic, CT the next day because his cousin was grounded? It was fine that I didn't know how to sail as he would trim all three sails upwind and downwind. Before the weekend was even finished, I was hooked and the rest is history.

After a successful four year college sailing career, I was introduced to the Lightning by Bill Healy and Nicole Breault in 2006 and reintroduced by Ched Proctor and Jamie Ewing in 2011. I wasn't particularly looking for a class to join, but I feel lucky to have been in the right place and the right time to find the Lightning Class. The Class is full of competition, fun, friendships, local events, travel, and opportunities to learn. I would have never otherwise had the opportunity to travel to Italy, Canada, Ecuador, Finland, and all around the United States. And all with people I now consider family.

By joining the Executive Committee, I am hoping to give back to the Class which has given me so much.
