Matt Renik

Born and raised in Boston, Mathew has been sailing on the Boston Harbor since he was 12. Currently a student at Boston University, Mathew studies Finance and Business law during the off season, aspiring to become an admiralty lawyer. He started teaching on Sonars when he was 14 and has since progressed onto many boats, but the Sonar still holds a special place in his heart. In the past few years Mathew has gained experience racing yachts in the Harbor and Marblehead as well as doing some racing for Boston University.

When not cruising around, you can find him teaching (since 2021), Soling racing in the summer, and Frostbite racing in the winter. His goal is to share his knowledge and passion for sailing with every student.
