From the Outer Banks, NC, little Guppy, Maggie, is a social butterfly and has cultivated a love of the water. At 4 she competed in her first sailboat race as crew, at 7 she was learning to sail youth dinghies and now at 9 wants to become a full time surfing chick.   You can always find Maggie in the pool or in the ocean, she is a mermaid at heart. She loves to search for sharks teeth and shells, combing the sand for hours at a time.  Maggie has her secret spots where she can find sand dollars and sea biscuits – just ask and she is more than happy to take you there.  She is our unofficial mascot and social director.   Meeting new people is exciting for her and she is very thrilled to be part of the crew when she is not in school.
