Caroline Fortier

Head Instructor, Program Director

Hi! I’m the new Head Instructor! Some of you may recognize me from past seasons, and I am so happy to be rejoining the AHSEP program! 

I’m finishing my senior year at Loyola University Maryland, studying Advertising & Public Relations with a minor in Environmental Studies.


Throughout my four years, I have been a part of our sailing team, the captain for the last three.

Level 1 Senior Instructor

I have been sailing for 11 years - all of them at AHSEP! This is my 6th year as either a Junior or Level 1 Certified Instructor. My favorite thing about being an instructor is being able to get in boats with kids who are having trouble and really form a bond with them. Next year I will be attending Middlebury College and plan on continuing my sailing career there. 

FUN FACT: I love to ski and am planning an extended ski trip to Argentina this summer.

Level 1 Instructor 

I started sailing at AHSEP when I was 8 years old and have been there ever since. I love meeting new sailors every summer and getting to connect with them. My favorite part of sailing is getting to spend countless hours out on the water and finding fun ways to play games out there. I am so excited for another awesome summer at AHSEP!

FUN FACT: My favorite AHSEP game is the bumper game!
