Head Instructor

Rylee Wernoch

I am Rylee Wernoch, a rising senior at Hobart and William Smith Colleges where I major in Biology and Environmental Studies. I grew up sailing at Metedeconk River Yacht Club in Optis, Lasers, 420s and Lightnings. I’ve instructed at Island Heights Yacht Club NJ, and, over the last two summers I have worked in Geneva with the Finger Lakes Institute to protect and celebrate the Lakes. I am a member of the William Smith Soccer team and I have just returned from studying abroad in South Africa. I am so excited for the opportunity to join SSA this summer and share my passion for sailing!

Assistant Instructor

Rye Weber

I am Rye Weber and I have lived in Geneva my entire life.  In the fall, I will be a freshman at Cornell University studying chemical engineering.  I started sailing at SSA when I was twelve and have been entranced by sailing ever since. I’ve raced 420s at many regattas over the years, along with a couple laser regattas as well. This will be my second year as an assistant instructor and I look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces this summer!
