Patty Lawrence

Owner at Sailbuzz

Patty enjoys connecting people, great ideas and sharing her passion for sailing. Sailbuzz is the perfect forum for bringing that all together as she knows sailing in all its configurations.

This former educator from Ohio, somehow managed to find a career in various parts of the sailing industry.

Patty served on US Sailing’s board for several terms and chaired the One Design Class Council. A favorite undertaking was co-chairing the One Design-Sailing Symposium which promotes grass roots growth.  She is a past president of the Thistle Class Association and when she finished that gig, turned Secretary-Treasurer for a number of years. These days, volunteering to lead her club’s junior program is a wonderful challenge and the successful program has double in size under her leadership.   In 2009, she began managing the education program at various boat shows and discovered that she truly enjoys working with the sailing industry.

She and Andy, along with their daughters, have spent many happy hours racing their Thistle in all four corners of the US.  She finds sailing good fit with her family as her girls race Lasers, 420s and Thistles.  When not racing, the family enjoys exploring cruising grounds including the Great Lakes, Bahamas, North Channel and most recently Penobscot Bay.
