HYC's Coaching Team

Laura Dalgleish
Sailing Director


Laura fell in love with the water and the sport of sailing at a young age. She started competing at the age 9 in a sunfish. At the age of 12 she began sailing her Snipe, which she still is an active member in the Snipe fleet, now competing with her husband. While attending Texas A&M University in Galveston, she was a valuable member of the varsity sailing team where she competed in multiple coed and women's nationals and Laser nationals. She is now committed to sharing her love of sailing and growing competitive and passionate sailors.

"I could not be more excited for this opportunity to coach at Houston Yacht Club,” Laura said. “The excitement and enthusiasm I have felt from the members for our youth sailors is contagious. I hope to continue to build our youth programs and coach a generation of energetic and competitive sailors."
