Small Crafts

Carly Spotts
Small Crafts Dept. Head
Liittleton, CO

Carly returns to join the 3-Year squad after two incredible Laurel summers as a 2021 Sailing Counselor and our 2022 Small Crafts Head. A recent Outdoor Products graduate of Oregon State University, Carly grew up sailing boats and crewed a 112’ yacht in the Indian Ocean. Most recently, she worked on the Mt. Bachelor events team and completed an outdoor product internship in Charleston this past spring. We’re eager to have Carly’s expertise and spunk back to lead the Laurel sailboats on Echo Lake!
