Alex Padgett, Waterfront Director LLSC
LLSC welcomes a new addition to our team in 2017, Alex Padgett as our new Waterfront Director. Alex is from the Atlanta area growing up racing Snipes, Thistles, Lasers and 420s. Alex grew up in a junior sailing program progressing on to summer instructing then Head instructor at the Wind and Water Learning Center in Orange Beach, AL. After college, he pursued a career in professional sailing program management in Dallas, TX as the year-round Program Director for Rush Creek Yacht Club. There he managed a multi-class program of optis, lasers and 420s. He developed a full program offering from introduction to sailing programs and a full-time junior race team.

Alex brings to LLSC full time professionalism to the club in waterfront asset management. Not only will he be managing the club equipment (motor boats, sail boats, marina facilities, boat storage slips) but he will also ensure that all the members have what they need to be successful running races or using club boats. Our equipment will be his oversite and all the assets meet the high expectations of our membership.
Program development at LLSC is a key component of our future growth at LLSC. Supporting our Institutional programs (GT, UGA and RMA), High School and Race Team components but also the FIRST SAIL experience will be key components of his job. Our existing programs such as the Adult Sailing, Learn to Sail, Summer Camps and Membership Boat Use program will have oversite by Alex to ensure their continued success.
LLSC welcomes Alex to the team and look forward to expanding our sailing experience at LLSC. You can find him in the New Waterfront Director Office just across the parking lot from the club.
