Mats Klinger

Mats is looking forward to his second season at the sailing center! Mats moved to Boston from Frankfurt, Germany two years ago and fell in love with the Boston atmosphere. 

With saltwater coursing through his veins, Mats’s love affair with the water began at a young age, fueled by the salty breeze and the rhythmic dance of the waves.  Mats enjoys coastal hikes and capturing nature’s beauty through running. He’s also an avid newspaper reader, especially drawn to maritime tales. For Mats, sailing is not just a job—it’s a way of life that teaches resilience, teamwork, and harmony with nature. He is very excited to announce he came in second in the 2023-2024 frostbiting season.
