Past WET Member Profiles

Kathy Byrd-Hohn

Kathy Byrd-Hohn is the new WET president. Kathy can usually be seen with Marcy (club Treasurer) or some of the other local women at either Fort Monroe's Mill Creek, Willoughby, Day's Inn, or Buckroe.

Kathy races in the summer and takes advantage of the ligter winds of the race season with her Techno board and hangs out with us wind snobs on her smaller gear when the winds pick up.

Kathy lives in York County with her husband Todd and works at Langley Air Force Base's Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.


Marcy, tweaking the lines, at Buckroe

Marcy Kennedy was just elected to the position of Treasurer in November. A highly motivated sailor, this is her first year of active involvement in the club. She was instrumental in the fun day we had this summer that was so successful and did a wonderful job of hosting the first board meeting. (Great lasagne!)

Marcy has been a Willoughby-regular in the past, and primarily a giant slalom boarder but is just now making the transition to short boards. She did wonderfully on her first good day on a couple of different 100L boards in 5.3 conditions and chop at Day's Inn. She's hooked now.

Marcy works in the Chesapeake school system as a school psychologist/consultant for the Emotionally Disturbed program. She lives in Ocean View with her husband George, and her sons Chris and Joe.


Bob and Chris Rowland

Call him Dr. Bob. Call him whatever you want. Dr. Robert Rowland has been a regular in the Hampton Roads area for several years. He can often be seen at Buckroe, Mill Creek, Willoughby, and Chick's Beach as well as throughout the Outer Banks. He recently bought a house on the Pamlico Sound in Rodanthe (he eventually told his wife) and has been enjoying weekends catching the thermals down there. When he's not on the water he's playing the role of radiologist at Chesapeake General Hospital.

He is a WET member At Large and has been quite active in local events. He recently led WET in the joint venture with the American Cancer Society and their Little Cup Regatta. He also hosted a week at his new home this summer for WET members.

Here he is seen with his lovely wife Chris in their new beach retreat.
