Meet the MYSF Leadership Team
The Madison Youth Sailing Foundation is led by a team of volunteer parents dedicated to creating and growing a fun, safe, and competitive sailing program in the Madison area. We are always looking for enthusiastic leaders who share our passion for youth sailing. Contact us if you are interested in joining the MYSF board.
Andy Muller grew up in Racine, Wisconsin and learned to sail with Hoofers while doing his undergrad at UW. Soon thereafter he joined the UW Sailing Team, where he made life-long friends (including his wife) traveling the country to compete. He taught sailing for several years at Hoofers, Geneva Lake Sailing School, and at Madison Youth Sailing Foundation. His wife, a lifelong sailor, races C scows throughout the summer, and his children are part of the program at MYSF. Andy’s top priority is to create a fun environment for kids to safely gain independence and learn and build skills through the art of sailing. Andy is excited to be a part of the Madison Youth Sailing Foundation.
Aaron Mann learned to love sailing racing X-boats, Lasers, 420s, and scows on Big Cedar Lake, Wisconsin and across the Midwest. As a member of the UW Sailing Team for three years, he raced competitively all across the country, participating in two ICSA National Championships. After college, he raced C and MC Scows back on Big Cedar Lake. During a 4 year hiatus living in Minneapolis, Aaron was an active E Scow sailor on Lake Minnetonka. Now back in Madison, Aaron and his wife Liz (also an ILYA youth sailor and UW sailing team alumni) have started a family and are invested in growing a strong youth sailing program in the area.
