Sail America, the trade association for the U.S. sailing industry, welcomed one new member to its 2022 board of directors: Charles Saville of Quantum Sails.

All directors are elected through the association’s standard election process. A nominating committee submits candidate names to association members, who then vote anonymously on the names put forward. All board members serve for three years.

The new Sail America director will join president of the board, Josie Tucci, from The Moorings and Sunsail. Also elected to the executive committee were Margriet Mitchell of Jeanneau America, Peter Trogdon of Annapolis Boat Shows, Ted Winston of Spinlock, Kevin Carlan of Mastry Engine Center and Mark Pillsbury as past president from Cruising World. The executive team joins the rest of the board members, which includes Freya Olsen, NMMA; Josh Toso, U.S. Sailing; Lenny Shabes, American Sailing Association; Patrick Turner, Catalina Yachts; Todd Hess, SailTime; Cindy Kalow, Superior Charters; Tyler Fields, Ballentine Boatworks and Tyler Fields Photography; and Don Smith, Beneteau America.

The Sail America board says farewell and extends its thanks to Chris Doscher, Hudson Yacht Group for his tenure and service to the organization.
