Andy Herlihy

Andy Herlihy

Executive Director

Herlihy’s lifelong love of sailing was fostered as a child, when he sailed with his family around Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands, and he continues to sail with his wife Liz and two children on their sloop Mi Girl. He sailed at Georgetown University, where he graduated in 1998 with a degree in Economics. Andy intends to impart the life lessons that he has learned on the water as a crew member and at the helm to the 500 children who experience CBC’s programs each year. “Boating is the perfect tool for teaching. When a child steps on a boat for the first time they are forced to rely on their instructors and fellow sailors as they are in an environment so far out of their comfort zones. This helps us to quickly break down barriers and to form special bonds with each child”
