Meredith – ASTA Intern

Posted by calebpifer on June 22, 2006

My name is Meredith McKinnon and I am a 2006 Summer intern at the American Sail Training Association. I began sailing tall ships at the age of 14 on an ASTA member vessel Black Jack. In the Summer of 2003 I was a junior crew member aboard STV Fair Jeanne and traveled from Kingston to Chicago with Tall Ships Challenge and ASTA.   This internship is an incredible opportunity for me and I want to make the absolute best of it. With that in mind I set my goals towards becoming a confident and able sailor, learning the inter-workings of a not for profit organization, and meeting sailors and landlubber’s from all walks of life!  My primary focus is learning. I look forward to achieving something new each day, from learning ship names in the office to understanding the most complicated sailing strategies on the water. I am sure that this summer will be filled with many surprises and I am eager to face them all!
