Oakcliff Sailing adds two board members

Oakcliff Sailing has named two new members to its board.

The nonprofit foundation said David Storrs of Southport, Conn., and John Henry Taylor of Bayville, N.Y., are lifelong sailors and accomplished businessmen.

They join the board’s six current members.

Storrs has been named treasurer, a position Oakcliff said he is well qualified for because of a distinguished career in finance and investment management.

Taylor brings 40 years of marketing experience, which Oakcliff said includes working with Pepsi in sponsoring Dennis Conner's 1986 and 1992 America's Cup campaigns.

"David Storrs and John Taylor will add great value to the board," Oakcliff Sailing executive director Dawn Riley said in a statement. "I have known both of them for many years and know they possess unique skills and a passion for what we do here. They will be vital to the continued growth and prolonged success of Oakcliff Sailing."

Oakcliff Sailing is a non-profit, high-performance training center in Oyster Bay, N.Y., for sailors who have progressed beyond traditional coaching methods that seeks to develop American leaders through the sport of sailing.
