Board Members


Julia Brandt - Commodore

I began racing sailboats in 2008. I have crewed on a variety of boats, performing multiple positions. I enjoy traveling to compete. For the past several years, I have been the sunfish fleet captain and been responsible for hosting the circuit regatta. I am honored to be the Commodore of our club; to represent our community and our little slice of paradise.


David Tyler - Vice Commodore

I began sailing at five homemade board boats from plans in "Mechanics Illustrated". It looked like a Sunfish. I progressed to Scorpions and then Dolphin Srs. I crewed on a few transports of race boats back and forth from Florida and Texas. I discovered Catalina 22s in 1977 and have been sailing one ever since. I have recently retired and look forward to spending my time at the club!


Kevin Culver - Rear Commodore

I have sailed many a ship. I have been to faraway lands. I have and will always consider Lake Worth Sailing Club by home. I am honored to have been a member through club transitions and growth, and remain proud for what we, as a long-standing club represent; strength in the sport, beauty in the art form, and family in the club members.  For those that have come and gone and those that are yet to be seen, we are the essence Lake Worth Sailing Club. This is me and I love it.



Cheryl Springer - Treasurer

My sailing adventures started in the 90's. I bought a 22' sailboat with a friend. Neither one of us knew how to sail so we bought a book on how to sail your sailboat. We had that boat for 5 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I now have Catalina 25. I have been a member of LWSC since October 2019. I'm beginning my second term at Treasurer.


Andy Katz - Secretary


When I was 17, I learned to sail on a Sunfish in the harbors of Easter Long Island,  After college in 1980, I moved to Texas and brought the boat with me.  In 1996, I joined the Arlington yacht club and got into racing in the O’Day Daysailer fleet.  Over time my racing skills developed at the regional and national levels.  We also had a Catalina 22 for cruising, but later started racing in that fleet at the AYC and at LWSC.  I share a Catalina 25 with Glen Brandon and that is now our cruising boat.



Jonathan McMillian - Race Committee Chair

Jonathan learned to sail with family while growing up in Nova Scotia and during summers spent in Kingston, Ontario. The sea is an important part of his family's heritage, so sailing was a natural love. After moving to Texas in 2002 Jonathan took up keelboat racing to stay in touch with the water. Experiences ranging from one design club racing to offshore and great lake distance races on boats from 22' to 50' have provided many years of enjoyment. He prefers crewing on the pointy end with lots of strings to pull. With a family now old enough to learn, Jonathan is hoping to put more effort into sharing sailing with others through boat ownership, and service to LWSC.


Trey Core - Vice Race Chair

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge Louisiana. From a young age I was interested in engineering and I completed a degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech in 2019. While working a college internship in New Orleans, I began my sailing career with weekly handicap races in Lake Pontchartrain aboard a Ranger 29. I currently own a Hobie 18 Catamaran and J/24 which is undergoing restoration. When I’m not sailing I enjoy motorcycling, tinkering, amateur radio, and cooking.
