Max Lott-Director:

   
Growing up in Rockport, my first experiences on the water began in an Opti at Sandy Bay Yacht Club. I developed a passion for the ocean, which has taken me all over the world to discover the wonders, recreations, opportunities, and contentment of the sea. 


I attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy, receiving my bachelors degree in Marine Safety, Environmental Science and Marine Biology. My studies were a great introduction into the maritime industry, which allowed me the opportunity to voyage across oceans on sea terms, research great white sharks in South Africa, and much more. During the winter months, I'm a Captain and Dive Instructor for Trilogy Excursions in Maui. The team and I take thousands of guests sailing on 65' Catamarans to discover the underwater world surrounding the Island. Directing this program has been a huge privilege. 

I fully understand the importance of providing a safe, fun, and stimulating learning environment that inspires kids to develop their own passion for the ocean. I am very excited to be returning to Eastern Point Yacht Club for another great summer on the beautiful waters of Cape Ann.
