Sail Cape Cod Taps Former Yarmouth Sailing Director as New Program Director

Jim Hoar picHYANNIS – The non-profit organization Sail Cape Cod has hired the former Town of Yarmouth Sailing Director as their new program director.

Jim Hoar takes the position after spending more than 30 years at the helm of Yarmouth’s summer sailing program.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Coach Hoar’s extensive background as a well-respected sailing director, coach and educator become available at a time when we were searching for a new Program Director,” said Sail Cape Cod’s President Mike Trovato. “His experience makes him a great fit for Sail Cape Cod, especially our outreach programs for disadvantaged youth and those with physical or intellectual challenges. Under Coach’s stewardship, we look forward to taking Sail Cape Cod to new heights as a true community asset.”

“I am very excited to be joining Sail Cape Cod at this stage of the program’s development, and welcome the challenge of helping it realize its full potential,” said Hoar. “I am especially inspired by its mission of serving the disadvantaged and the under-served through sailing, and look to share my experience and passion for sailing in continued service to the community.”

The town recently parted ways with Hoar, despite objections from year-round and summer residents.

No reason was given for the decision. Town officials said they could not publicly address a personnel matter.

Sail Cape Cod provides learn-to-sail opportunities for citizens with disabilities and disadvantaged youth.
