Andy HerlihyExecutive 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”
Richard FeenyEducation Director
Richard loves racing classic wooden boats, long distance ocean racing and cruising, V-15 racing, and once lived in Maui where he learned to ride a sailboard on the North Shore waves.
Caroline ConzattiAssistant Director
Even though Caroline grew up in Mattapoisett, she has never been sailing, which is something that she hopes will change now that she's a part of CBC! She joined us in May 2017 after spending 10 years working at the Kittansett Club in Marion. She is involved with a number of other local organizations, for which she serves on various boards and committees. She also spends a lot of time with her family, most of whom live close by.
