Originally from Bristol, RI, Charlie Enright got into sailing because of his grandfather, Clint Pearson; he spent most of his time in his boat building shop, "When I was five years old I had to choose between sailing class or a baby-sitter, kind of a no-brainer."
Charlie sailed at Brown University and in 2008 his team hosted the College Sailing Nationals in Newport, RI. Nationals ended on a Sunday, and he started working at North Sails that Monday, "I started working in One Design under the tutelage of the great Vince Brun, and after a while I transitioned over to yacht sails. Currently, I sail all kinds of boats….Offshore, Inshore, IRC, Class One Design….this summer looks like 12 Meters and Marstrom 32's….whatever it takes".
Charlie was named College All-American (Atlantic Coast and NE Champs) during his years at Brown. He won the J/24 Midwinters in 2010, 1st place in the Newport-Bermuda Open Devision in 2010, and has competed in the Trans-Atlantic Race, Transpac Race, Fastnet Race, and Carribean 600.
Sailing doesn't leave him very much free time, still Charlie keeps busy by "working out, skiing, cooking and eating, reading, and messing around with tools". He is getting married this spring, that takes up a lot of his time. He also has a dog…who is, "in general very nice but unintelligent".
