Liam Clone

First Mate

Liam has been sailing since he was a little bobber in the TACS program at age 6. Through his years growing up he raced small racing sailboats on the high school team and was recently invited to skipper the team to race in the North American Melges 24 Championship in 2019. Having Liam to handle the lines and trim the sails is great entertainment of its own. He usually knows what the captain want before the captain even asks.
