Summer Burroughs


Junior Sailing Program Director

I am very excited to have been hired as the The Eastern Point Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program’s Director. The EPYC program will be oriented towards aspiring sailors of varying skill levels between the ages of 8-15.  Junior Sailing Program begins June 27, 2022 with weekly sessions running through August 5th.   All sessions are open to members and non-members.

I learned to sail at the Essex Bay Sailing Club on Conomo Point, Essex, MA at age seven and sailed for EBSC for roughly eight years.  When I was sixteen, I became an instructor for beginners, intermediates, and the race team. I am very excited to meet the EPYC community and I’m looking forward to providing your young sailors and aspiring sailors with a fun experience on the EPYC waterfront that will make learning a breeze!
