Learning to sail at The Tabor Academy Summer Program in Marion, Mass. at 9 years old, Stu McNay’s passion for the sport was clear, his instructors encouraged his parents to enroll him in a learn to race program at the Beverly Yacht Club – and the rest is history. McNay finished 13th in the 470 at the 2008 Beijing Games and 14th at the 2012 London Games, both with partner Graham Biehl. The two-time Olympian has his eyes set on Olympic gold in Rio after qualifying for Olympic selection with current teammate Dave Hughes.
McNay is one of three sailors who attended Yale University.
