Matt Personeni

Hi, my name is Matt Personeni. I am 19 years old and I just finished my freshman year at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. At MMA I play hockey, and I completed my first sea term voyage where I spent 52 days at sea improving my seamanship skills. I have grown up sailing at the yacht club and I have always enjoyed spending time on the water.  My favorite memories of sailing come from the summers spent racing 420s with Pete Ross.  Our best performances were here at home, where we won our first regatta in green fleet at JOs, and we went on to place in many more in the following summers. This will be my second summer here at the HYC and I am looking forward to another great season with the sailors!
