Linda Tillman Interview

Interview conducted by Fleet 12 member Vince Casalaina

Linda Tillman grew up sailing Snipes at Diamond Lake. She sailed with a girlfriend and one of the best parts about that was beating the guys. You get the idea that Linda is competitive.

Linda liked that the Snipe Class was a friendly Class and that everyone sailed with integrity. The established Snipers set the example. Now it’s Linda and Dick’s turn to be the examples for new people coming into the Class.

She’s still excited to be out in the Snipe because it is such a team effort. You sit close together and you need to coordinate your movements to make sure the boat is going its fastest. She says when you get a lift, the boat just soars — with such a great smile on her face.
