First Executive Director Named To Sail Cape Cod


HYANNIS – Sail Cape Cod has announced the appointment of their first executive director. 

Cape Cod native Josh Richards will manage, develop and lead the organization as it moves forward. 

Richards said he is committed to developing opportunities for the Cape’s population, including those with disabilities, young professionals and the youth population, who many consider undeserved. 

“We essentially look to offer opportunities to get every individual on Cape Cod out on the water sailing and enjoying an activity that is so quintessential to the Cape’s identity,” said Richards. 

Since its founding in 2012, Sail Cape Cod has worked to make sailing available to all.  Its SeaLegs Adaptive Sailing Program allows people with physical, cognitive and developmental limitations to take part in and enjoy the activity. 

“We’ve been pretty consistent in getting over 400 folks out on the water over the course of our eight week summer program, for around a thousand sailing lessons,” Richards said. 

As executive director, he will be working with Sail Cape Cod’s Board of Directors, Staff, Volunteers and Community Partners.
